W7XU's Top Ten List
. . . of ways to know this year's shower isn't up to par :

10. You've only made 1 of 30 schedules and it's already the 12th
  9. Your preamp really isn't blown, it just sounds like it
  8. You run the 1st half of a sked on the wrong frequency, but it doesn't make any difference
  7. You've just run 6 skeds without even a ping, and begin to wonder if your IQ really does exceed your noise figure
  6. Guys are calling you on the telephone to make tropo skeds
  5. Your best DX of the shower is a tropo contact on .200
  4. You go outside not to look for meteors but to see if your antennas are still up
  3. You find yourself considering working the FM'ers on 144.138
  2. You start reminiscing about how the Leonids used to be a major shower, too
  1. You find yourself making top ten lists instead of working randoms
