Here is an interesting question.
Did anyone hear someone pass a multiplier but not make an attempt to stop
transmitting on the run frequency?
(Of course, I don't refer to the multi xmtr stations). There should be a
lockout to prevent this. If you did, please do not announce
on the reflector who it was. There just needs to be a discussion about not
transmitting 2 sigs at once.
In one of my searches for a frequency on Sunday, I was listening to KQ2M
CQing. Many times he would stop for a 20-30 second gap
to work someone on the second radio. I was VERY tempted to CQ on "his"
frequency. A classic Weed.
However, the ensuing argument and the inevitable phone call did not seem to
be worth the effort.
No one is immune to this frequency stealing stuff, it is just part of the
I always jump on a CQer right away. It usually works. Sometimes not.
And I have a pretty big station, but so do alot of other guys! In fact, I
lost a multiplier because some guy jumped on my run freq right away, and I
didn't have time to call the guy on the second radio.
My good friend K3ZO just loves to CQ next to me. It doesn't bother me,
except that he is louder!
I figure since he is a single op, and so am I; we both are having the same
trouble finding a clear spot.
So I don't even say anything, just smile....
