Even as it was, CWO overlapped RDA with only 6 of the 12 hours... I think.
I was caught by surprise the impact of the keyman event in JA which is 12Z
to 12Z. At 12z the JAs were massive and loud on 40... and none of them
would talk to me. We need to get both JA and EU participation way up there.
Still, an interesting idea.
Any word from Bruce?
