It's the guys, Brian, that listen around with their receivers and hear 
stations like K4KYV who has painstakingly spent literally hundreds of 
hours building his rig,  and making sure the antenna is correct, and the 
feed-line between the two are ok, and here's Don out there calling CQ 
with his big, strapping, strong signal, and here's  Johnny Novice ham, 
WN5QRM with a rice-box, running too much carrier for the audio, a G5RV 
compromise antenna that's only 25' off the ground and semi-lossy coax to 
feed it, who -then- has the attitude of "Well, I can hear YOU just fine, 
so you -SHOULD- be able to hear ME just fine!

That, my friend, is the -little rig - Big Ego- attitude.
