K0XP wonders why:
"........ that over a whole weekend of a contest, we lil whipperschnappers
can't seem to achieve a rate over 40 Qs/hour; yet, during an ordinary weeknight
(during a sunspot min yet), calling CQ on 80 or 40 will yield unlimited pileups
Of the thoughts that come quickly to mind, here are two:
1. On an ordinary weeknight you are not competing with the loud stations, both
W/VE and those in EU.
2. The EU's are likely attracted to your K-zero call. You might see your rate
reduce as they learn that you are in Connecticut :>).
