I already came across your articles. The reason I brought it up was that I see so many complain about 
new hams not knowing this, or that and the other too but then most don't really try to help and teach.

I live by the principle that what you learn you must share and what you know you must teach. That's the
only way we as society evolve and that includes ham radio :).

But again, bashing on the newcomers doesn't help anything. If they're only shown how to work a satellite 
with a HT and a store bought antenna then that's  what we get. Let's help these folks get to the next step
and show them that you can actually have a real QSO on a satellite but in an informative way, not talking
down on them.
