Yesterday afternoon, the West Coast window opened not before the lunatic fringe took satisfaction in throwing continuous carrier waves including the self appointed Up, Up, Up cops, and cuss words spelled out in Morse code. Frank Sinatra sang a line about this wherein he said, "Bring in the clowns."
So, I listened to the three ring circus on 7O6T transmit frequency, when the ring master finally ushered out the lunatic fringe, by the way, the clowns only harm the swarm not the operation. Also, the next level above that of LID is the CLOWN, because really, when one listens to the behavior, it really is clownish and comical.
Okay, after listening to the Up, Up, Up cops reminding me of a vaudeville visual where Charlie Chaplin is chased around and around, I got down to the serious business of bagging the rhino signal out of Yemen.
Because of bandwidth consumption, I initially moved upward from nearest the transmit frequency as the Up, Up, Up cops allowed taking a James Bond gamble at meeting half way. Later, after the evaporation of 5 minutes, I changed my strategy tuning the Icom 756Pro dual VFO at the high end of the swarm, right at the upper edge.
It was operating at the upper edge moving 1 kilohertz up then 1 kilohertz down that finally paid Monaco.
Stay thirsty for DX my friends.
