I know that one Q.. with a peanut station, doesn't mean a thing to the big boys... but IF I make a Q with a station,... it is NOT in MY best interest to fulfill HIS ego.. by waitin around for an ID.. I will wait for one maybe two Qs.. then is it suddenly becomes a NIL.. and it doesn't matter to me if they think they are a BIG mult or not.. what does matter is that they are not an unidentified Q in MY log. Later in the contest.. they won't call me.. they think they have one.. and if I call them later.. and there is a hint that is a Q B4.. I'm outta there.. no Q... and that makes not one hoot of difference to me. I won't win a contest.. and I can't compete with the multi dollar supported stations... and it is NOT fun for me to pay homage to their ego. I'm in it for the fun. I maximize my fun, by making Qs, correctly, without a lotta wasted time. Making sure my station is correctly id'd.. at least every other Q.. IF someone thinks they can do it better.. go for it.. but go for it with less power. Really maximize your fun too!!
Have a great day,
