    i have a suggestion.  can we try to limit the amount of banter, WX reports, etc. on ao51, especially on the weekends, when many people are wanting to get into the bird?   i am not trying to create conflict, but there seems to be the same few people who make a contact with a new or rare station, then immediately go into "ao40/ao07" mode.  maybe there would be more support (fund$) coming into amsat if more people could use the bird.  hey, i have not paid much dues into this hobby for sure, just trying to open it up a little bit.  the single channel FM birds have finite space and time, so please, lets "share and care".  thank you for your consideration.   3 years into this stuff, and it is still a blast!

and OT, critical mass san francisco was a blast too!   no riots, hassles, etc.  just 4 hours of bicycle riding around the city with great people and WX.
