I think I was the only station from CN85 working this particular pass. I didn't hear any other station from CN85. I'm kind of taken back when some unidentified station identified "the CN85" station as always having problems and he doesn't know what he's doing or having problems with. You know what, maybe your are right.
But then I could hear the sat very well, I could hear my station identify myself, and I did very much not try to step on any one already in communication that had control of the sat and waited my turn until it cleared.
I would have very much preferred to have an email or a call from someone offering to help a station that's relatively new to sats and act as an elmer rather than cast the aspersions as I heard. I am new to sats and I'll not apologize for that. I do have not have a lot of experience with the Icom 910 but I've tried to assemble a reasonable satellite station. More help would be appreciated than criticized over the air.
