Gee ! a problem on FM sats

After all these years and many post about the lack of operating
protocol on the FM birds ...Here we go again. I got into this
discussion about 15 years ago and nothing has changed and ain't likely
too. FM satellites are what they are and about all anyone is going to
be able to do  about the situation is either join in or stop using
them.  I got pissed off again on 1-12-2007 when KB3MBO was trying to
allow his 4 year old son to experience satellite operation and it was
all I could do to make a contact with him. I ask for a break so he
could work a couple stations and got no help. I have been pissed since
and it usually takes me about a month to get over it. See you in
February on AO-51. 73's << John
