Off topic, but ZL9CI.

On my setup here (FT-1000D and a TA-33 at 35 feet), ZL9CI was never 
higher than S2 on my S-meter.  I ran only 200 watts and worked them nine 
times (different bands/modes).  On some bands all I had was my G5RV.  I 
doubt they heard me at S-7.  I have a rather large chuck of land called a 
hill that effectively blocks me in the direction of ZL9.
