A year or so I did some antenna work for a local non-contest type, on his
Tennadyne log periodic. We checked things when I finished and all seemed to be
OK. A couple of days later he called and said he thought something wasn't
working because he wasn't hearing many signals.
Af first I thought "oh crap", I'm going to have to go back. And then I had
another thought. I called him from home while in front of my radio, and asked
him if he heard a signal on 14170 (or whatever). He did. Then I tuned up
another 20kHz or so and asked him if he heard a signal there. He did. And so
on. Of course there was nobody on in between.
I told him to give me another call if he was still having problems. I haven't
heard from him since.

Subject: Re: [CQ-Contest] Contesting Popularity
As a contested and observer of the bands, I'd like to point up that while
contest participation and scores have increased over the past decades,
operation on HF between contests seems to be trending downward.
