I am a new operator on the sat's. I started back in mid December of 08.

I can tell you that I don't even look at the AO-51 pass data much any more 
for the same things Jim has listed.

Its more like "Contest Mode" that any thing else and not just with the K5D 

I have been checking to see what is going on with the K5D pass's but like 
all of you, loose interest vary fast.

I think that if a DX station is going to be working the birds he should have 
all the power he can get.

Let him clear his own way on the band and everyone will give him space.

If that DX station can't make it in with a good signal they have no chance 
of controlling the space he will need.

Just a thought and that's only my own.
