Subject: Two More SS Jammming Incidents

Our club station had been running people for 10 or so Qs after asking twice
whether the frequency was busy, when someone started CQing right on top of 
us.  We told him the freq was busy and we'd been there for a while, he said
he'd been there for 4 hrs.  Weird propagation? - maybe, but he must have 
gone from inaudible to easily audible in a few seconds.   We moved a bit, 
he followed us like a little kid and CQd on top of us again.  We moved a 
bit more (we're not aggressive), he follows us again and CQs, says "it ain't
going to work, buddy".  We ignore him, make Qs over and through him and he
eventually crawls back under his rock and leaves us alone. 

This was on 20m and by a fellow contester, or someone pretending to be one - 
and the lid was using the callsign of someone who has posted his results to 
the contest reflector within the last few days.    With contesters like this, 
who needs the SSTV crowd.

I'd name the guy, but I'm still hoping that it was someone bootlegging a call.
