Thank you for that voice from the real world!
I don't have the kind of cash it would take to buy a radio that can work
DX a few hundred hertz from a high-power local station. I used to be
able to work all kinds of DX on 160, but it's a lot harder these days.
It's even harder when there are ten high-power stations calling over the
top of the DX, but that's a different issue. That happens on HF, too.
