That's the point I tried to make a bit ago in a slightly different 
context: Should the running station delay the ID until the pile-up thins 
out, thereby rewarding the operators who stuck around the longest over 
the ones who invested lots of hard work in building antennas so they 
could be louder? (Yes, I know some wealthy hams just pay big bucks to 
have someone else build their antenna systems, or fly in on Friday as 
guest ops, but at least some of us are up there on the tower(s) 
ourselves. If you've done it, you know it's a lot of work.)
