Re: Unimpressed!

Hi Jerry,

I  just wanted to add to your statement that I too have had problems on
AO-27. I try to make contacts with people that have setup a sked with me to
confirm grids, and the AO-27 "click" if you will. Won't even shutup to allow
others to use, and have fun on the satellite. There is some real good people
on AO-27, but there is also some very rude hams that I would hate for
anybody to hear. I share your feelings... 73...
