HI Eddy -

Most likely it is not the "obviously seasoned operators" who are causing you
and all the rest of us grief on Top Band.  It is a repeating occurrence
during casual daily operation and guaranteed on any DXpedition frequency.
This morning on ZK2C was no exception.  These are blatant QRMers, not
ignorant lids.  I also believe there are at least three different recurring
offenders (predators?) that slither about 160m cw causing the tripe.  It is
up to other local Top Banders to identify these scoundrels amongst them.  In
the mean time, I use very narrow filters to avoid the QRM as much as
