9V1YC was 57/58 into Texas on 7085 SSB, calling CQ as the contest 
began. He was getting no answers, but that didn't prompt him to QSX 
up for USA! (It wasn't James operating). In fact, one of the 
characteristics of IARU is how few Asian stations listen up for USA 
on 40M SSB, despite typically excellent propagation 1100-1300Z (BC 
QRM? QRN? Not interested?).
