The solution is simple.  Just before the contest, flame all your buddies
and acquaintences on the reflector.  Then they'll be pissed off at you and
won't be your friend for a couple of days, so you can spot them at will and
no one will be able to accuse you of spotting your friends.

Actually I think you all are in danger of heart damage from all this
mountain climbing amongst the molehills.

I'll be on 160 this weekend, but since I just pissed you all off, you can
spot me as much as you want.  If no-one spots me, then I'll assume you're
all still my friends.

73, de Hans, K0HB
