I knew I should have snagged one of those neat KH6 calls. Then I could give
out separate mults on both transmitters.

Can we spin off another reflector for the policing, apprehension and
torturing of vanity and other offenders? As Rosanna Rosanna Danna used
to say, "It's always something!"

Don't let these malefactors take away something you might have wanted.

Those not with us, are agin us!

Big Don remembers one like that from 20 years ago.  Real klutzy op
didn't know how to run a pile up, or really what to send when, but he
stuck around for awhile and a few of us got "worked."  Not much else was
happening on a deadsville band and this guy had a monster juicy signal.

He was using some weird callsign like OXB4X on 14.005.

Well after he left we had a little discussion on the frequency about what
to make of all that.  The consensus was some bored-out-of-his-skull
commercial op in the frozen wastelands somewhere decided to drop into 
the ham bands to break up the monotony...

You mention a slow bad fist and big signal for ox1om...that fits the
