OK Drew,

Then some poor SOB with a BBQ dish is QRMing AO-40 right now.

I've NEVER heard anyone with BBQ dishes at the same level as the beacon.
I've heard LOTs of L-banders with BIG dishes stronger than the beacon.  Yet
you rip on the guys with the little antennas.  Go figure.

It's so easy to blame the people who really aren't at fault.  I could EASILY
hear you if you were 8 dB below the beacon.
