I used to think the reason big guns did not hear me were due to their  
running directional receiving antennas, but I now suspect the majority of  the 
problem has to do with the very narrow receive filters they  run.  During 
this recent contest numerous big guns did not hear me when  they were full 
scale on my S-meter, so I just kept changing my frequency ever so  slightly and 
then they magically came right back.  It's amazing  how just a slight change 
in my TX frequency made all the difference in the  world.
