I have also experienced that. For a person doing that I would guess that disruption is the whole point. They are not interested in a QSO.

It has been difficult, but I keep trying and sometimes succeeding. The discouraging thing is the open mics on 91 and 92, which I am beginning to think is a deliberate act by some disgruntled ham that can't get into the bird. What doesn't make sense is that if the station is powerful enough to disrupt, it would be powerful enough to get in.  Brad KC9UQR
