Joe I get your point, 9 BWAS JT65 so I'm used to getting flattened by 
almost every
other mode including SSB on 40m, but to penalize a station for operating 
in a certain
frequency range won't work. If you're going that route make sure to get 
a list of ALL
the frequencies the unattended stations "own" so they can be avoided as 
well, never
know when one of them will fire up and you better not be on their 
channel. That should
pretty much limit the operating space to a few kHz for RTTY. The best 
solution is to
have one of the JT guys switch modes to RTTY and politely tell the 
errant op what's
going on, that's how I discovered the JT modes, and a nice follow up 
email with details
and links will go a long way to ease the situation.
