Methinks this will be a good test of combined operator and equipment 
capability.  I, for one, don't care if others are competing for 
frequencies, etc.  If I can't work through the garbage of RTTY, I'll 
turn in my CB license (long expired), along with my current Amateur 
Radio License.

We learn by trial, if we don't try, we don't deserve the space we 
operate in the RF spectrum.

Besides, if a European station is running more power than is required 
for their communications, they are probably operating in violation of 
their country's amateur radio rules and regulations (if they're anything 
like those of the FCC), so they should be cited for their transgressions.

That's my 2¢ worth on the subject.

CU on or around 7000 to 7070  and 14000 to 14070 KHz during OQP 2010, as 
usual starting at 7045± and 14060± KHz.  I'll change frequencies when 
and if I don't receive any response to my CQ OQP de N8Q

72/73 de n8xx Hg
Operating as N8Q from HENRy County during OQP 2010
