Seems to me that the "Control Operators" need to step in and shut down the 
sat if the situation gets bad enough on a given pass.  No control appears to 
be the main problem these days.  Operate the sats like a NET - request your 
contact through Net Control.  That will give the "regulars" something 
constructive to do and control the chaos.

Where are the OO's ????

This is and will be an ongoing problem until the powers to be  at amsat do 
something about the mess on the FM birds . Tom  you are preaching to the 
choir here because most of the offenders have no idea that this BBS is here. 
If the FCC stopped long enough to monitor this madness, they would likely 
have Amsat shut it down. BUT it is our job to police the ham bands.I guess 
that might mean we need to write down the bird,call sign ,date ,mode, and 
time and try to contact the offender and explain to the operator the trouble 
they are causing and offer them some advice on how to operate on the birds. 
Amsat wants users and needs members but this madness has to be corrected. I 
would not do a satallite demo any where and let people hear the mess that is 
ever present now and even worse on the weekends. Amsat needs to address this 
issue and offer a solution before the responsible operators givenup and 
quite dealing with the birds.
Thats my 2 cents worth  AGAIN
