Mr. McGrane,

As the operator who emailed the organizer of rhe 13 Colonies special event to request that he include satellites - and as the operator who solicited all of the satellite stations who are operating with a special call sign - you should direct your vitriolic comments to me, not to one of the stations who agreed to assist me in getting as many of the Original 13 Colonies on the air as possible.

I regret that you don't share my (and others') enthusiasm for this special event. I wasn't even able to work AO-51 last night because of all the stations trying to call others using special call signs from "the colonies."

Please ... be angry and frustrated with me, not with anyone else. And please feel free to email me on or off this BB. I'll provide a phone number if you'd like to call and rip me by voice. Whatever.

And for what it's worth, I believe it was I who stepped on you to work W8MRR, not WA3SWJ - all the more reason to give me what for, I suppose....
