The DX pileups also trample all over other users who were already
operating before the pileup decided to creep up 25kc from the DX
station. We have to share the bands. When there is a DX expedition on
nobody else is going to have a turn. When there is a big contest on
those people are going to trample all over the band, too. Get over it.
When I am on the receiving end of that I just pick up my accordion or
brush out my dog's coat (he loves it) - or - move to a different band
(evil grin). Don't get yourself an ulcer worrying about a *hobby*. We
all *knew* there is a big contest on.
