For the same reason that when it's your frequency and you've been sitting there calling CQ for over an hour, that they respond to your CQ and immediately take over the frequency and start calling CQ.  They just don't understand Amateur Radio courtesy....

Lately, when I have been answering CQs (sometimes to some rare DX station, at least for me), I have had several stations calling me on the same freq., totally obliterating any response from the station calling CQ and of course I won't answer them because it is not my freq. (and I am trying to work the station calling CQ). Now I realize that they may not hear the other station, but if I am making a specific call (not a CQ), why would you call me?

Congrats Jerry, thats exactly what should be done! Some stations, including U.S., think

if they call you enough times, even while you are in QSO with another station, you will

answer them just to get them the heck off freq.

 

You don't need to hear both sides of a QSO to know when it is finished.

 

My two cents wortj.

They did this on first part of QSO with G-station and then after I sent it back to him they continued.   I give them the benefit of doubt, but they need to call only when I sign with other station and call CQ again or QRZ .



This happens often and I can usually sort things out, but today it was different plus I think I woke up on wrong side of bed, hi !

      Jerry,



Let's think this through. Is it very possible that the 2 DX stations weren't copying the station in England?



There have been many ocassions where I've seen a station sign off, and I've called them, only to have them go back 1 more time to the station I can't hear. Did that make me rude, or make me a station that thought the station I was calling had actually signed off?



Our pencils need not be that sharp when we can't know what the stations in EU are hearing.



Just another $.02 worth.

Hi Jerry,

Based on the comments from some very experienced DXers and my personal experience handling EU pileups as an op on the 3D2C DXpedition, I can tell you this is increasingly the norm.

15m would be close in between Germany and England. It's possible that the German station didn't hear the English station and you were very strong. If I can only hear one side of the converstion I listen to a few qsos to get the station's signing clear pattern so I know when to call him..even so, without hearing the other station I could still be causing QRM.

 

I'd give the other 2 stations the benefit of the doubt

I will probably make an appearance, but unfortunately I work 2nd

my 80m OCFD on 160, but I don't think much of the power gets

You can try and old trick I have used successfully before, unscrew the pl-259 and back it out of the connector on your tuner, antenna side. That will make your tuner think it is a long wire and tune. I did this with my old DX-CC and my current Carolina Windom and both short antennas tuned. It won’t be fantastic but it will keep your radio safe.
