Do you think that because it is amateur, that you can ignore proper protocols? CB is amateur too and lacks protocol. Do we want that? Beaconing...legal, broadcasting... illegal. That's something old codger amateurs
didn't make up on this board here today. Calling CQ satellite for the whole pass isn't illegal, may be lidish, but would you tolerate that breach in proper satellite communications because it's amateur communications? You possibly could be one to complain that you missed a VUCC grid because of that poor operation and probably wouldn't excuse it due to the definitions you presented.
1) person who engages in a study, sport, or other activity for pleasure rather than for financial benefit or professional reasons. (Doesn't mean pleasure should derive from lidish behavior.)
2.an athlete who has never competed for payment or for a monetary prize. ( There's a reg for that.)
3.a person inexperienced or unskilled in a particular activity: (I assume your hanging your hat on this definition? Unfortunately, most operators are skilled in this activity. Might lack experience, but skilled.)
So, that was all that was being pointed out to you by the other posts.
PS, If you have any comments, feel free to email me in private as my address should be on the post. We can then keep further discussion off board so that it remains a civil board.

You know I knew there would be a spoilsport in the group, well we are all entitled to our opinion. In my opinion ALL of the people are "Boadcasting" and the moment someone starts experimenting and actually having FUN with a two way conversation on the ISS, if you bothered to look that is you old codger! So the 99 percent of the people that are "Beaconing" and not even saying anything, now that is a waste of power.
Broadcasting and a waste of power, you know what a waste of power is? Me bothering to respond to such negativity. This is Amateur Radio.
