Pardon me if this is a repeat post, I've been moving to Gmail and am still
learning its oddities...
I had a chance to put in about 14 hours this weekend, and it's been years
since I entered the ARRL DX CW. I noticed that same zero-beat wall a few
times when I was trying to run. I really had a hard time with several
stations all zero beat. Like John and Rick, I had to wait for someone to
call out of sequence, or try to pick out a letter or two to call for. I
don't recall seeing this before, though I am sure it was a lot bigger
problem for a rare station than for me :)
Fortunately (?) with 100W I usually did better S&P than running. Saturday
afternoon the JA's were good on 15M... I could copy the 100W JA's about S5
on a quiet band, even the 50 watters were S3, but I never got a solid run
going. Rate was around 30/hr. from 2200-2400Z.
