Perhaps they had the misfortune to be readers of this bb and just 
couldn't stand any more "discussions" on lotw or diplexors or phonetics 
or cranky old farts bemoaning the lack of HEO's or useless, pointless, 
grid chasing. Has the Amateur Satellite service degenerated to the level 
of general ham radio.....no technical expertise, no interest in the 
"how",and "why" or the friendly help for for folk with an interest in 
the TECHNICAL side of ham radio.....surely the folk who can manage to 
get a contact on a very high repeater must be satisfied, and move on to 
a more challenging pursuit such as collecting foam cups or something.
My thanks to Domenico and Erich and the others who present satisfying 
technical input to the board...to the others, please go back to another
BB to discuss phonetics,lotw, etc.
Surely there must be another BB to arrange(!!!!) and discuss contacts on 
the AO51 repeater?

Cranky Old Fart, Flame suit ON,
