    It's the life of a killer receiver. People always refer to those with amps and big antennas on deaf radios as an alligator. I have coined a new term to describe my situation with a 6700 on a wire antenna: "Dumbo - All ears, no mouth."

    an easier way to test is to use JT65A, , call CQ and then check PSK Reporter.  It will map who heard your CQ. https://pskreporter.info/pskmap
