One thing topband has taught me: Never assume you can be heard as well or as
poor as the station you are trying to work and do not jump to conclusions
about the other stations ability to hear or work you on a given day.
Tomorrow it may be different.

My hat off to the crew at C52, they do it for us, thank you.
