 " We have very limited spectrum with 
thousands of stations trying to squeeze into it. "

Not seriously taking part in the contest it was interesting to tune across the 
band with a 60. Hz band width filter and hear hundreds of Usa stations. Apart 
from five stations with a mixture of very bad clicks. some +/- five Khz and  
phase noise. Who made no attemt to reduce / clean up there signal. It was 
possible to hear Asia / Usa within 300 Hz of some very strong stations.  If the 
stations that put up spots like .Deaf, no Rx were to actually  zero beat there 
signal to the person they were trying to work there Qso count would increase. 
It was interesting to hear stations getting frustrated because they could not 
be heard, some being as much as 1000Hz away from the station they were trying 
to work . Ive not got a problem with the thousands of stations trying to 
squeeze into it.  just the few that know they have a bad signal but make no 
attemt to Sort It.
