recall ever hearing the east coast work the pacific in the afternoon where
we could not hear the station.

Actually, I find that useful. During the K7C expedition, I often could not
hear the station at all. I wondered if my rig was broken, or my feedline

The type of stuff that's completely useless is the comments directed toward
the DX. Do they really think that K7C is spending any time watching the
messages in the packetcluster?
