My experience here is that contacting people who cause problems and 
pointing them in the right direction is highly likely to succeed.  In 
this part of the world, almost all ham originated QRM is accidental, 
caused by poor station setup or operating practices, and these people 
generally appreciate someone taking time out to give them some pointers.

Good idea.  I have written similar, suited to the generally lighter 
traffic in this part of the world (e.g. on late night passes, a 
ragchew with short overs of 15 seconds or less and 5 - 10 second 
breaks between overs can _help_ people find the satellite, so they 
can pick the downlink our from the noise!).  It should still be 
online at http://vkradio.com/satiquette.html .
