I find myself calling in the pile on HF on occasion (I'm working on
helping my HF signal this week). Getting through on satellite is much
easier and faster. Back when we had AO-13 and AO-10 we also had AO-21 (FM
Bird). The FM bird was pretty much the same in those days. You are correct
it is a lot like contesting. I actually enjoy the quick exchange format of
the FM birds. I really don't understand why other folks feel the need to
complain about it-- if you like it join us -- if it's not your cup of tea,
there are many other facets of Ham radio available.
