I was just giving him the benefit of the doubt. I hope he's not THAT kind of operator. I would go with a technical problem, BUT you saw more of him than I did. I'll assume that you're correct.

Whatever Jerry but he was interfering. He NEVER did have a conversation.  All I saw was about 10 different times he would end up on the same frequency as the station calling CQ.  Had several stations call him but he never would answer.

Seems like other people can complain but when someone else complains just once then there must be a reason for the error.

My apologies and I’ll not complain or express my concerns on the reflector again.
Heck, in fact, I may not even get back on the reflector if others seem to know it all.

thanks for your input.

He may be having a tracking problem with his software. If my settings are standard (12050 or whatever) I have to change them to (13000 something) and then I'm on same frequency as station I'm calling.

P43 may have settings problem and not know it.

Nope, this guy has done it too many times to too many stations and it is too coincidental to him jumping around and ending up just when someone calls CQ.  Heck, when he did call CQ and I saw others actually answer him but he NEVER did have a QSO with anyone yet.  I believe he is gone now though.

Signals are dwindling a bit and I do know that we do not all have the same propagation!!

I was just getting on and letting people know just in case, just like you do my friend.

Saw him once briefly , was answered by a W8... then disappeared. I see you signal intermittantly andf one of 2 others. We don't all have the same propagation, Dan. I do see a few stations jump on occupied frequencies, but they may be clear where they are.

Well, I’ve been watching this one station who I had once called upon but he did not answer me. I noticed as other signals starting calling CQ all of a sudden he would end up right on top and started calling CQ. I saw him do this at least 6 or 8 times already. He does have a strong signal here in NC also.  I don’t think it is by mistake either. Too coincidental . His call is P43..  — Did not want to give the whole call.
