I don't know if I was spotted by DX or W station but I had the most
horrendious Pile early Saturday AM when band first oppened to EU. Op Freq
apx 28160 I had to put in 18db of pad and reduce the RF gain to pull out
partial calls from many QRP GP/Dipole types. Not a horriably misbhaved
pile just untold numbers, I now know how the Rare DX guy feels when the Spot
I had many W's call and just gave a quick report rather than say No good.
Maybe they will call in the next One.
Tnx to those that didn't set down 200hz away.
