Oh please... I was not talking about a direct beam heading. Yes, I know
K7C is 298 degrees from my QTH, and if I didn't the software tells me it is.
I was talking about times when strange things happen, such as skewed paths.
Sorry I haven't been around long enough to know about all the propagation
flukes; most of you have been contesting for many more years than I have
been alive. So, helpful reports like that on the cluster *have* helped me.
Snibe comments like yours on these mailing lists don't do much for anyone.
