I find this post Unbelievable.

I've been moderately active on AO51 since it was first launched and have yet
to hear anyone refuse to allow another access to the satellite.

If the satellite is quiet, then why shouldn't a conversational qso be

If you wish to use the satellite all you need to do is, politely, break-in
and make your call.

I find that just saying my call sign during a break in the conversation
works well.

How in the world is is even remotely possible that people hold a
conversation on the bird knowing that there are 70 people ( probabally more
like 170) using the bird for quick contacts? HOW IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE.. I
cant imagine the ignorace involved... I just cannot fathom it.
