Word of the Day: Poaching

Poaching is when a third station strays onto the frequency of a station who is running in order to make contact

with one of the responding stations.  If N9RV is running stations on 14024, say, and you attempt to call one of

the stations that he has just worked, you are poaching. As the term implies, this is aggressive and unethical contest practice.
