I have at times patiently awaited the pass of the ISS to work a different packet station only to miss the opportunity by the repeater being busy the entire pass by trying to deliver BBS mailbox messages to someone and that station never retrieves his mail . It's just one of those things We endure . I have been calling 2   HF traffic nets for several years and have attempted to pass traffic to someone in the same town as the message is to be passed to , only to have that station deny taking that traffic . Why would anyone check in to a" traffic net "and then refuse to handle local traffic ? Sometimes I just don't get it , but We hang in there regardless . 73's
