The AO-51 repeater uplink was switched to 145.88 on the 2215 pass 
tonight. I realize there are multiple grid dxpeditions out and about, 
but that does not excuse some of the operating I heard tonight. If 
another station is in the middle of a QSO, stand by and let them finish. 
If you start to transmit and can't hear yourself, or you hear someone 
else  in the downlink, stop transmitting and let them make the call. 
Finally, if you've worked that grid, or that station, or that country, 
how about taking a breather and letting someone else work it for a new one.
