One of the stations that always hears well is N4AR. He is always one of
the first SouthEast stations I work on 160. Usually gets the exchange
the first time. K8CC is another one.
I was using CT 8.22 in the 160 test and had the Super Check Partial enabled
most of the time. With a fast computer, CT will update the Check Partial
Window each time you enter a letter in a call. I was amazed at how many
US calls were in his database. I think over 80% of the calls in my log where
in the database. Nifty feature but the delay in updating with a slower
computer is very annoying. 16 MHz 386SX is definitely not fast enough but
33 MHz 486 is a breeze. Hi...
