Good question,

I prefer in English. There are other operators listening and so they can 
understand the conversation. I hear a lot of Russian speaking operators 
on some fm birds.
That way you don't know if they are pirates or amateurs. I don't 
understand a callsign in Russian and I don't know what they are talking
