Floyd: thanks for the note, I must say that I really have never noticed the
potential problem of the noise floor increasing under strong nearby signals.
I have operated four CW contests within the last two years and certainly
have encountered some strong signals. I  have noticed however  the nearby
key click problems and transmitted noise problems from close stations. I
also use low gain receiving antennas and so this would generally reduce
signal levels into my receiver. I would really also be interested in
studying  the report from ARRL to see exactly what levels those tests were
