I now regret all this, but when I'm fobbed off by W6s who I call
& keep calling when they ignore me, I'm sorry, but what I'm
used to doesn't factor in.

Even a partial call was met with go-away-&-try-later.

Quite simply, I stood up to the challenge & found myself
alone.  Beams east & CQ again, without any takers.
