Actually, this happened twice to me this weekend alone and we
aren't rare. Twice I had stateside 0 pointers call in at the
same time as DX called in. Once, the guy was very insistant
that he get worked first (maybe he didn't hear the DX - I'll
give him the benefit of the doubt). I worked and logged them
all but this could be an issue for Big Guns.
