Well, I am not active user of PacketCluster but when I checked OH2BUA's
Internet DX Cluster during the weekend, it looked like a total chaos.
It was like it especially for CY9AA chasers!
CQ FD spots were rolling in , 5 per minute ;-)

K1DG's scenario is coming alive. The winner will have 500000 connections
instead of X qsos!!;-)
