[amsat-bb] LEO QSO etiquette

After almost a year off the air, I tried a few minutes ago a contact in
AO-27. Things didn't change since my last QSO's. Stations keep making
satellite contacts as they were using repeaters. The QSO rate is so low that
I wish I stayed in the cool environment of my office instead of being inside
my car with almost 35 degrees celsius inside.

Why does an amateur radio operator succeed with a technical examination and
it's not able to understand some basic principles of satellite operation?

Is there anything we can do?
