Re: How about DXCC honor Roll for everyone

There is always an exception: A W8xxx faithfully only calls when DX calls 8-land only.  DX quits calling 8-land because he has lost prop and is now only calling coastal stations, W1,W2, etc.  However, this W8 happens to live in FL, so has to add the /4 to get back in the “pile”.  Not that common, but happens.  He never gets in the log because the DX regards him as calling out of turn.  Personally, I have even thought of having my wife record my voice keyer.  That could create chaos though, called by an male, answered by female!

Or how about the guys who were suddenly “portable” when the DX was going by call areas? I seem to remember that one as well.

Hey, then it would not just be propagation shopping. It would be call area shopping!

+ AA6YQ comments below

 

Conversely, it isn’t fair that N2RJ has a female voice which “stands out” in the pileups and influences the DX to work her station before my gravely old male voice in the same pileup.

 

+ I've heard that sometime before I got my ticket, a DXpedition operator in Yemen with an enormous and unruly SSB pileup came back with "the YL only, please", after which the entire pileup responded in falsetto.
