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?).
