The FM birds are nothing but a circus and operators on them love the circus 
atmosphere. My solution is to stick to the linear birds where the QSO's are 
longer and the operators friendly.  If you need Montana, I'm on all the 
linear birds almost every evening from about 0000z to 0500z.  FO-29 has 
been super to operate since it's come back up and it's even working in
