Even with my new hearing aid (FT-1000MP), I felt like the classic 
alligator in this one.  I know many called me whom I was unable to copy 
and also had many busted contacts.  And it just kept getting worse.  By 
10PM local, the noise was so bad that I could only hear a half dozen 
signals that I had already logged.  Slept six hours and awoke to a new 
high in the noise level.  Two more Q's and enough already!
Very frustrating, but my own fault.  I had intended to have a quiter 
receiving antenna put together by now..  Next year?
