Conditions on 20M were quite nice on Sunday so I got on for a short time and worked what I could. Being out-of-state, I was only doing S&P. I got so frustrated at the lack of identifying by the running stations. It was the worst example I've ever seen. On more than one occasion, I worked a station before I knew the guys callsign, because he wouldn't ID! My last Q was with a station in a new mult (PUT) but I never got his call, so I couldn't log it on my end. Should I work a station before I know the call, probably not, but why go for 5-10 Q's without ID'ing? I should have just tuned right past these guys. Rant over. Working the mobiles was fun. Either the counties are small in FL or the mobiles were positioning themselves at 4-way county intersections because it seemed they changed counties very quickly. I remember one guy on CW send AS (stand-by) and then he started reporting a new county. Must have pulled a few feet forward or backward. Sorry I never heard fellow MRRC member K8MR. I looked for you. 73, Tom K8BKM
