Rag is 100% right --- when I was in FO a few months ago, the prevailing
propagation was to EU over the pole in my evening hours. Given that I was
apparently fairly loud in EU, the pileups quickly became 5 to 10 kHz wide and
the only way I could give a fair shot to callers was to alternate between
either end of the calling throng. Thank God for RIT!
