Chasing DX over the years and getting into pileups with the DX station in my left ear, and the pileup in my right ear, with the transmitter following my right ear.   Cells in my brain have grown a powerful biologic assembly language subroutine that allows very fast communication between my right hand on the "VFO" knob and my right ear listening for the person who the DX station is currently working. Over the years there have been additions to the small subroutine.
-Are they moving every time?
-If they are moving, how much?
-Do they move to the top of the pileup then turn around and start back down?
and other subtle changes.
This nearly hard wired collection of neurons and synapsis has proven it's value over and over.  If it ain't broke don't fix it.  8-)
