Well said.  Contesters try to muscle others off a frequency all the time. The talented ones 

don't move and ignore the new arrival, continuing to call CQ even if they're making fewer 

contacts because they know the other guy isn't either. Usually, the new arrival gives up and 

goes away. Not to say you shouldn't handle interference diplomatically, but if someone's trying 

to muscle you off a frequency, if you were there first, don't budge and don't acknowledge 


We've all had the band can change and a QSO already in progress start coming  in as skip 

changes, but that's an infrequent occurrence in my experience, and usually hams in one QSO 

or another will QSY or wrap up their QSO.
