Big gun - The derogatory label applied to anyone who can work the stations
that you can't.

Subject: definition of a big gun?

Just curious with the talk about the ISS and A0-51 being dominated by big
guns. I'd like to hear some answers on what people consider a big gun
satellite station.
I'm talking in parameters of power, number of elements and gain of antenna,
antenna height etc. I know what I consider a big gun on HF but I really have
no clue what's considered one on satellites other than the fact that he's
a guy with an HT and an arrow antenna!
