[amsat-bb] SO-50

Dear Folks:

Is it just me or is SO-50 not quite as easy a bird to work as AO-27 
or AO-51 were?  I actually prefer working the SSB/CW birds, so I 
don't have as much experience on the FM sats.  That's why I'm 
asking.  Even though I'm able to make a few contacts on SO-50 every 
pass I am on, it seems like everyone has a harder time getting 
in.  It seems there are few times that people seem to get into the 
bird full quieting, even without other stations competing for access.

Just curious.

Thanks and 73 de Bernie, KF0QS
