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...
