As a little pistol, I don't have many moments where I'm running and I see a 
sudden increase in rate. So, I remember them.

After the contest, I often put my call into DXSummit or DXWatch and see if I 
was spotted. Quite often, I see I was not. Why the sudden increase in rate 
then? I think it happens just as many times through luck as it does from spots.
