Some county hunters use remote stations - that have a few seconds delay - so you have to be cautious of them. The answer to your QRZ can come 2-3 seconds later than others calling. Not intentional but that's the system delay. Might wind up QRMing other QSO in progress.

Band conditions not great either. Mobile signals 'in and out'. Sometimes QSB takes signals from S2 to S9 in five seconds and back again. You call on peaks but might be in valley by time the mobile responds. Not fun with no sunspots, geomagnetic storms under way, etc! Out west, even worse!
