That's one very important element.  A second is taking both transmitting 
and receiving antennas seriously and cranking power into them. A third is 
BEING THERE. Remember all the activity we heard during the recent contests?  
Compare that to how quiet the band is most of the time. I worked nearly 60 
JAs during CQ160CW this year. I'll bet that many east coast stations worked 
twice that number of EU stations. And did anyone notice that there were a 
half dozen ND stations on last weekend for CQSSB? And one of them, KD4POJ, 
has already uploaded to LOTW.
