Maybe they aren't doing anything inherently bad???
I like to use the satellite for A, you like to use the satellite for B. We both have the radios and the license. Neither of us is doing anything illegal, or even harmful or fattening for that matter. Someone working toward one award is more important than someone working towards some other award?
You like to say hello to your friends, I like to work new grids squares, both are completely legitimate uses of the bird. Everyone probably believes their own personal use of the satellite is the most important. It is a shared resource. Live and let live. If it weren't crowded people would complain it was empty......
I could work those guys on the Spratly Islands, if everyone else would get off 20 meters....
P.S. Remember when Iraq showed up on AO-13..... That was a pile up!

WHY NOT TELL THE BAD OPERATOR WHAT THEY ARE DOING WRONG
MEMTOR THEM , TEACH THEM HOW TO OPERATE. EVERYONE IS RUNNING AROUND THE PROBLEM. TELLEM HOW TO ........
The 1000 and 5000 contact thing is a big part of the problem. Maybe the AMSAT floks need to address it first ! I have made calls to stations that I needed for a new grid contact only to hear someone jump on and call someone for another THANKS FOR THE CONTACT. That sucks and is a problem. We can work SSB birds and should but the FM birds is where we need to clean up. Its our job to tell the bad op, so lets start telling them
PLEASE no more comments on the subject TAKE ACTION send them an email or send them a note in the mail and be nice about it.
