It was the worst I've ever heard which was a shame as there were several new calls and grids that I haven't heard in the past.  I think I made it into the Bird once but that was it.  AO-27 earlier in the Day was bad as well.  It sounded like someone was pushing the buttons on their Mic and sending out tones over the top of others who were using the Bird.

Subject: [amsat-bb]  Ao51 Protocol ?

I just thought I would check to see if I am using the proper protocol on AO
51. Based on the last pass, I gather one should wait for a station to call
another station, then key up on top of the caller. Then when the other
station attempts to respond, we should all key up on that station. Also, on
a busy weekend pass, one should call out 'CQ' 'CQ' multiple times.  Etc.

THAT was the rudest pass I have ever heard...LID City
