Help with handling "dog-piles"

Here at the DD5LP/P station we have been trying to find a better way to handle the pile-ups or “Dog-Piles” as the americans call them (sounds more like an illness to me, but never mind).

We have scoured the world for a better way and today during my activation of DL/AM-176 Rentschen, I managed to enlist the help of a world specialist. Recently arrived from Rumania where she was teaching advanced radio, B 0 N N Y, that’s B zero N N Y was able to show me the routines required to better process all the calls - here is a picture of her giving her invaluable advise:

She said some of the audio from the stations was a little RUFF and several chasers were BARKING up the WRONG TREE.

But she still believes she can LEAD me the correct way to better operating.

That takes the (dog) biscuit!!!


Dear B0nny,

I have trouble with dog pileups on my nature strip. What should I do?

When I have to deal with dog piles, I just use a big shovel.
