    I think I bought 800ft of LMR400 from R+L. They took good care of me.

    Well it's become easier to spot some of these stations now that I've got JTAlert customized for certain audio alerts. So the computer starts making noise when a desirable call comes up. I've also got the JTAlert display color coded so at a glance I can focus in on the calls that might be more interesting.

    It's a combination of luck and preparedness. Maybe mostly luck.

    When I'm calling CQ I answer *anything*. When answering Calls I get a little more picky if there is interesting stuff on the band..
