Excellent !

This tells two things:

Despite what has been written here recently, there still are DX who
know what they are doing with the round knobs they have sticking outta
the  box with a fan and corners. (i.e. the Radio)

What makes the story real bizarre, is the distribution of people
pointing and clicking the DX on the band map .. Some have a magical
ability to call a tad down and then also a bit up to get to add the
letters and numbers on the log line.

The skills are !
