What do I know, but the FM satellites in addition to providing grids and 
awards have evolved into another type of social media, after making many 
contacts and a few friends on the FM satellites, I continue to visit,in 
spite of the crowds, to say a quick hello to Rick, Tim, Marc, Allen etc. not 
as often, spending more time on the Linear satellites, which we all should 
and can evolve to.  A lot of us are interested in building our grid count, 
or working a station in Mexico or Brazil or someone on a grid expedition.  I 
can fully appreciate others who cannot embrace any of this and are bored 
with the congestion, so they move on.  But for many of us, the thrill and 
goose bumps we get  working thru a satellite spinning in space never gets 
old, so we accept the situation and feel that the positives outweigh the 
negatives and plan for another pass.
