Dear Bob AE6RV,
There are a thirrd "sect" the one I belong to. We prefer to use cw and also prefer to meet telegraphers instead of members of "today's crowd".
I have just been calling on AO7 from AOS to LOS on SSB to help those who does not understand Morse-code.
I have got one only one taker G1WPR. (Just take a look at AO7 log at planetemily.com)
It's a shame! Are there active stations in Canada and NE USA?
Formery I have met K3SZH only.
Then I swithched to VO52. You can hear devil of noise on that sat. Many deaf operators tuning up and down and calling without being able to pick up a callsign,etc.
It is almost the same experience I felt when we got permission to 6 m. There I met first operators who did not understand to keep a QSO short during an Es opening, started sending station details and the like.
I should say there must be a "communinty" of educated radio operators who understands to keep their QSO short -but can also find out when to have a "chat" during the often short DX openings -and first of all on satellites!
