One might think - after reading these "anti-FM-bird-operators" posts - that there would be massive problems with sat ops in, say, in the most populous region of the most populous state in the U.S. - Southern California.

I am proud to state that there are NO such widespread problems emanating from this region. We have more hams - and more people - and consequently more potential for problems. But those "problems" have been very few and far between.

This might be a "perception" problem, too. I mean, one person's anger at a "pile-up" is another person's excitement at the "challenge" of working the birds.

And so it goes ...
