How many times a night do you hear people screaming this out?  Would be easier if the Guy working the pile up, would specify on every QRZ.

The most expensive piece of equipment in your hamshack should be above your shoulders and between your ears!
DXpeditions are put on by people that wants to put a rare entity on the air.  They are usually self sponsored, followed by sponsorship from local clubs, regional clubs, national clubs and also personal donations.
Their goal is to put as many call signs in their log books as humanly possible.
These DXpeditions are advertised at least one year in advance and their call signs are listed by both the ARRL and QRZ.com
If you are too dumb or too lazy to know how to look them up, and all you do is hear something or see something on a spotting network and decide that you want to crank up your amplifier, twist your beam antenna their way and try to work them,  more times than not you won't be able to, at least not on the first try!
The contesters that travels to these places do not use their own voice, but a voice guide or a program such as N1MM that allows them to record their exchange and all they do is push a button and give out numbers and verify call signs.  OK
Usually if you have people from the USA that are unruley and acting like jerks, they have a 5 in their call sign.  It seems that the people from Texas that came from the CB radio, that believes that everything is bigger and better in Texas are the main trouble makers.  Georgia and Alabama comes in a close second.
Anyone that has ever dealt with Todd Burnett and his wife Chandra will attest to that one!
The best thing you can do is to follow the DX University rule for contesting and spread out and hope that they will tune to your frequency.

Here is the basic principals that they teach at the Dayton Hamvention DX University.

An Inexpensive webpage for my new Echolink/IRLP node.  Open for testing purposes until I can get permission to use a local repeater.
MAKING A DIRECT CONNECTION First of all listen on your local machine for at least 15 -30 seconds before transmitting and then ask if the repeater is currently in use. Assuming all is clear, identify your self and give the node name or number you wish to call . Example: "KD8xyz for the New York ...

Here is something of interest for you to listen too. My phone server at home, has a job, one of its jobs is to filter out scum like this call.

This call is from one of the many Microsoft scam calls, someone wants into my computer to help "Fix it".

Listen to how arrogant this asshole is, I am sure you will get a kick out of it.

So, here is Lenny........... he has a wonderful way of annoying morons.

If you have questions, please ask..

GoPro and many other may be in trouble..... Feast your Eyes on the NEW Garmin VIRB XE..

This camera is kick ass..... would be ideal for many types of footage.

Specs: The VIRB XE action camera shoots rich, high definition footage at 1080p/60fps, 12 megapixel photos at up to 30fps, and captures even more of your action with G-Metrix™. Powered by Garmin GPS, G-Metrix allows you to track and overlay how fast, how far, how high, and how intense the moment truly was. And, VIRB X and VIRB XE are able to dive to 50 meters without a case, allowing you to capture cleaner and clearer video and audio.

In comparison, HRO can be a little more in price than others.
