I was fortunate to have operated from some of the finest
amateur stations in the world. I learned that you cannot
work them if you cannot hear them....
These are links to some of the "big guns" so you can
see why they are on the top in pileups.
This list includes some great stations of the past (who
are now silent) as well as some top stations today....
The thing they all have in common is their huge antennas
The following link provides additional links to the
"big guns" today. Enjoy, and remember, "king of the
hill" is a dynamic event. You can't stay at the top forever.
