We had finally managed to scare up a mini JA run on 160 from G6PZ around
their sunrise time in the last few hours of WWCW last year, and were
particularly hoping that maybe a few other Far East mults would call in.
Then we got bust spotted (and given the nature of the bust, I would
guess possibly by an hyperactive skimmer feed) as EG6PZ. By the time we
began to fight clear of the wall of semi-local 50 over 9 Eu dupes, all
the JAs were gone.

Were we ever likely to be a station in the Balearics rather than the
bust of a well known English multi-op who has been blasting your ears
out for the past two days?  I suppose after 45 hours in the chair,
people weren't thinking all that rationally.
