Continuing my "sort of" series, I was just playing around using pile-up runner (a really cool program) to see how fast I could run a CW pile-up while using a decoder (apparently 80-100 QSO/hr) since I am still learning CW and who did I see "calling me?" VK3HJ was rolling across the screen! The program randomly selects calls from Clublog that do a lot of working of DXpeditions. Pretty cool to "work you," Luke!  Grin

Oh wow!

I'm "sort of famous" now!

Or maybe I'm only some kind of fragment of code in The Matrix, or something...

Haha... Yes, you are famous now!

I had to pause it and take a screenshot when I saw that. I just emailed you the screenshot. You can see your call in the list of calls worked at the bottom.  Wink

Funny.  I know in Morse Runner they have lids too so thankfully wasn't in that bucket.  Not sure if that bucket of calls is behaviorally determined?

I recall working quite a few eham calls during Morse Runner sessions too.  W2IRT and N3QE come around all the time for me for some reason.

Hope that your CW is coming along.

Set your call to P5/KM4SII and see if the pileup gets bigger!

Mason generates decent pileups even without a P5 prefix!  Grin

Now there is a good solution to 30m being wiped out time and again by unspecified/unlimited split pile ups! If only we could get more hams using this off-air software!
