         This can also sometimes indicate a station
running excessive power.  They can generate a nice
pileup of weak stations calling, but if gain is
not reciprocal (due to antenna/location rather than
power) on BOTH transmit and receive, they will not
be able to hear many of the callers.  I was in a QRP
only contest a few years ago and one station got many
consistent comments from around the country about his
signal strength.  The QRO clue was that he could not
hear many of the other QRP guys calling.  Some said
"one-way propagation" but I know better
