TI9/3Z9DX Top band

In the run up for the ARRLCW  this weekend some interesting activity heard at top band .
06:00  At SR heard TI9/3Z9DX  only short in workable strength 1845kHz  working SP
Before I could call  they went QSY to 40m phone

7150 LSB  was S5-6

Early Friday morning TI9/3Z9DX too weak also having rattle QRM direction west again

TI5/W9RE     much stronger
HC2AO  good signal today  easy to contact
 weaker then HC2PF but hearing well

After topband TI9/3Z9DX   qsy to phone  at 7155 QSX 7170kHz
of course lot of D-QRM
And OT4A  at 7153 to stubborne to  move  just kept on CQ DX-ing
it was "his" frequency   of course  cursed by a lot of om's
Very good rig 4 ele  17m boom    up  and down by motor control
Only thing Theo is missing is a tuning control on the rig.
Just moving few kc down would be the smooth solution in line with code of conduct.
