Why are you not complaining about CW on these frequencies.  During CQWW CW
the bands were packed all the way to xx.100.

I understand the SSB type bandwidth/tuning in the waterfall behavior.
However setting that aside, there were dozens of RTTY signals dead on
top of JT9 and JT65 stations this weekend.  The issue is that RTTY
operators don't know - or care - about the 48 seconds on/12 seconds
off/2 minute cycle of JT65/JT9.  If a frequency is vacant for even a
second some RTTY operator will press F1 there.

The only real solution is score reductions for those who transmit
(particularly those who run) below xx.0805 mark - particularly on
