I've heard these allegations before and there is something I've
always wondered about:
Even if some kind of illegal high power transmitter was used to
achieve signals that were 40 or 30 or however many dB louder than
anyone else, they still had to HEAR all the stations they worked.
I'd like to know how they managed to hear so many stations. Were they
somehow cheating on the receive side also?
