Thank you sharing some good operating practices that would make satellite ops in the US more enjoyable and equitable as well.

Hi all in Europe,
It is obviously about time to repeate a few 
good points about operating via the FM repeater 

1. Do not transmit if you can not hear it

2. When the satellite is busy - limit the number of QSO's to ONE

3. Do not call over an ongoing QSO

4. A valid QSO just needs the call and the report

5. Give way to weak stations like /p and /m 

6. Allow DX-peditions to make as many QSO's as there are callers

That was the short version :-)

I have a long version in English, Italian, Russian, Spanish and French.
I can send it to you if you want it. Could use a few other languages 
like Greek, Polish and others.
It would be nice if you can get it in your national journals.

And please no flames !
