Hi John

...unfortunately same situation more or less here over europe..

my thought is that education must not give way to ignorance and rudeness.

Oggetto: [amsat-bb] What a shame!

During the over head pass this evening of AO-51 on the QRP transponder
there was a station that called QC from AOS to LOS. He obviously could
not hear himself or anyone else. A couple of stations
tried to call him and got no answer. I wont give the call but I am
sure he it was him. What a shame! Hard to believe anyone would be that
inconsiderate. I don't know if the DX was on or not but they sure
would have had no chance if they were. Then someone started sending
music towards the end of the pass. How bad is ham radio going to get
before we all get feed up and find another hobby? Sure
is causing me to rethink my opinion.

skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly
proclaiming - "WOW, What a ride!"
