. . . .. .  the
contact I had with HB9DCE at 10.43UT on Sunday morning. He called on my
frequency as I finished a contact with DK5PT, and seemed rather surprised
when I responded, although his signal peaked RST-559. LX1PD worked him
immediately afterwards, but I didn't hear anyone else call him. Is this
another case of the mythical assymetrical ear syndrome, or (much more
likely) the geographical variations in propagation that many of us are
observing on the band?
I heard this QSO but only a few letters of HB9DCE's transmission so
did not bother to call. My local noise had been very low earlier but
got up to S5 by the time this QSO took place. Anyone without local
noise is at a great advantage - I occasionally hear the real noise
floor when all of the computers and TVs are off - and I am sure that
this is a major factor in how 'deaf' anyone is. In the days when local
noise was significant on 73kHz - before Rugby got wide - I did a lot
of portable receiving and could hear signals in the countryside
several s-points below town levels.
