I've never heard a JA and a DL on 160 at the same time.  Not 
even from W8JI.
  Well, it was a DL was near, as I could tell, they were calling...   I 
listened with the #2 receiver on the pile and set to 3KC wide, and the #1 at 
300 cycles and fished for this magical dx station I supposedly qrm'd - up band, 
down band, in the pile, on the edges, not to be found by me...  After roughly 5 
minutes, I lost interest and moved on as the JA was gone by then... 

  Interestingly, I did work the same JA 12 hours later....
  Now on my posting, you do not know me, but I do not post a 'hypothetical' as 
something that actually happened... I do not exaggerate or make things up... If 
I say I heard this or that, I did - or believe I did...
  John, I am in no position to dispute the operators of the JI superstation, 
with my little pistol station...  And after nearly 50 years of hamming, I don't 
have anything to prove so I don't even try... Your post did make me wonder if I 
had misheard the JA, so I pulled up Geoclock just now and set it to that 
time... It was sunrise in Europe and sunset in Northern Japan so I see nothing 
to make me doubt what I heard...  To the best of my recollection, I heard the 
JA best on the transmit array beaming Northeast - sometimes it happens that the 
transmit array will hear better than the listening antennas...
  cheers -
