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.
