I, also find complaints by KQ2M about frequency fights amusing, especially
in light of his past refusal to do adequate Title searches on 14.150.4
real estate. I suspect that his comments are in part a politically
defensive maneuver. In defense of Krassy, I'd point out that
the backs of his beams would be pointed at PA.

I was running EU on 20 Sunday afternoon when a few JA's called in.
I swung the beam to 330 to do a little more JA mining. I started getting
QRM'ed by EU's who apparently didn't know who I was. When the JA well
ran dry and I swung back to EU, there was K3ZO on my frequency, running
EU, but really barely audible. Now I'm not about to call Fred a bad boy
for jumping on my freq. Some understanding of propagation and antenna
characteristics is necessary to cool the tempers. I just QSY'd - 
no point in fighting!

And Thanks, Bill, for reminding all that it was Krassy operating this
weekend, while Matt starts clearing trees for more towers...
