Next one! Though that wasn't the issue here. No one was stepping on
him, just those trying to respond.

I really didn't mean to start the FM satellite debate here as there
are obviously pros and cons and it's good to have both FM and linear
transponders available for voice communications. I believe that 80% of
the problems on SO-50 are caused by people who cannot hear (and Fox
should do a great job reducing that problem). This pass tonight
brought out some of that other 20% and I just felt like venting :)
