Try to practice good operating habits. In a pile-up, only send your call after the DX station is finished with the previous contact. Don't be a "frequent caller" , establish a rythym and stay off of the DX stations frequency. If you have to be a "cop", try to time your remarks as not to interfere with the DX stations transmission. All of this only slows down the operation. If the DX station sends W4?...it means he copied a W4 in the pile-up and is looking for ONLY a W4. This is NOT rocket science guys (and gals)! Example: FT4TA and VK9DLX DXpeditions resulting in a very POOR showing in the operating habit Dept. by the callers. MORE RX and LESS TX!
On the air since 1957. Started as KNØJPL back in the Novice days! I use my club call WØJPL in some contests. Member of the MVDX/CC--Mississippi Valley DX and Contest Club. (KMØDX). I only need North Korea for a "sweep"! I sort the letter "J" for the Zero District QSL Bureau. Sort means I receive and mail out DX QSL's for zero district Hams with a "J" as the first letter of their suffix. (example: KØJGH, KØJA, KØJJ). Visit our website www.zeroburo.org/ for information on how to order envelopes if your in the Zero district of the USA. . Keep the ZERO bureau running smoothly by having envelopes and extra postage on hand. CW is my very favorite mode and I LOVE contesting!
