If Gordon (always ready with a cheerful comment) is accurate, then what is
the purpose of the BBS? Also, Kevin is far from 'selfish'...he is just using
the available resources. Helpful education is far more useful than lame name
calling, Gordon.

The problem is that when you use the packet BBS on the ISS, it stops
digipeating packets for anyone else.  So, for that entire pass, you're the
only person who can work the ISS.

Don't be selfish.
