I agree 100% with everything else, but must admit to mixed feelings 
about this one. I have mixed feelings about spotting anyway, as it 
brings out all the lids! I've often been frustrated when I find some 
DX while tuning around, only to have it spotted and then a big 
unruly pile ensues. I get what you are saying!

On the other hand... I'm finding it impossible these days to "be 
there" all night waiting for the few I need. The solution... set an 
alarm to wake me if something I need is spotted. But it only works 
if there is a spot. I suppose some will call this cheating, but how 
is it different than the time honored tradition of having a buddy 
call you or give you a "one ringer" when something you need shows up?
