Besides rude and poor operating practices and mistakes, there is another 
factor that contributes to the incessant calling problem.  If we, the 
callers, send our call enough times that the length of our transmission 
exceeds the length of the DX's transmission, we can miss the DX's call 
to the station  he's trying to work.  Thinking the DX has not responded, 
we call again, and again....   This problem is alleviated somewhat by 
the DX station adding the call of the station he's attempting to work at 
the end of his transmission, but really long callers can miss the DX's 
entire transmission.


The DX:        AA5AU  DE P5ABC 599 599 AA5AU K

US:             DE K2YG K2YG K2YG K2YG K2YG K2YG K
