Bob, do the robots listen at all before they respond? Say requester 
at location A has propagation only to a robot at location B. Location 
B also has a path to locations C and D where a QSO between 2 RTTY 
stations is going on. Requester at A not hearing C or D sends a 
request to robot at B and the request is decoded through the signals 
from D or E, will the robot start transmitting on to of the QSO 
between C and D?
