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.
