tonight 9M4SLL heard at  160 wkd at 80 
 earlier H44G very weak at 80m
But al propagation seems shifted to South EU.
Signals are very weak and if something interesting is heard a lot of QRI  tuning and deliberate QRM makes you want to switch of radio.
If 9M4SLL  says OH1? OH1? again pse..
Then the pile just keeps the same...
everyone  keeps calling as if there is no relation with whatever 9M4SLL says
How different is this when listening to a pile of state side signals
There is no discipline in Europe plus deliberate jamming is common now at every DX that attracks HAM's A cluster spot and a zoo is starting. 

I must admit that it sometimes happens to me calling simplex when split is asked. The K3 split setting is lost when swapping bands. A short check at 80m and back to 160 a K3 owner has to check every time whether the K3 is still operating shift frequency before calling.
if not   CONFIG:SPLT SV is set to YES 
 bedankt Enno   ..had kunnen bedenken dat er zo'n optie was
An other thing is that sometimes the RX of the 2nd RX is gone. Then I do a power cycle to reset. After that the 2nd RX is back but VOX is of  and split also cleared.
I think split is now kept since SPLT SV=yes.
But it is easy to have a mistake in the situation.
But I will not join the police force  to make comments on that over the DX calling frequency that will only ad more QRM.
 The simplex calling om can make a tiny operating fault I do not necessary have to hear the om  but I will hear the stupid police for sure.
