Maybe we need to pay less attention to the computers, pre-compiled lists of
stations we expect to be on the air, packet clusters, what we think we
should be hearing etc. and actually listen a bit harder...

Anyone who works DX and/or contests regularly will perhaps agree how few
stations calling CQ seem to listen out for, or even try to work weaker

As an old R/O once said to me - the art of radio boils down to one thing -
listening. That requires an ability to concentrate - something that seems to
be in shorter and shorter supply these days ;o)

look to K3ZO, a super example of an excellent operator with a modest radio set
up, very good antennas and a brain that works !
