Band O' RF

I was playing around in CQWW. I thought it might be interesting to see why contests are so challenging to a receiver. I turned off the click filter in Skimmer so you can see the wall of crap that is being generated

It is often "presumed" by the K3 crowd that the Flex radios can't possibly stand up to this, that some how the RX will fold. Nothing could be further from the truth. In this sea of high power and clix my noise level is about -116 tonight and I have no trouble hearing stations at the noise. No beeps no boops no overload, just good clean CW. I'll let them have their delusion and instead I'll just work the DX
