hundreds are not necessary. only a some so that notice is taken. belive me,
i have gone out of my way to handle this in as a polite and non-offending
manner as possible. i have volunteered my assistance, economic and
otherwise, to help move the repeater to another frequency. i have tried to
be convincing and i have been definately non-judgemental. i have talked to
other hams that belong to that club as i am not a member. i talked to the
members of my two clubs (which by the way was succesful with a third club
whose repeater was on 145.850 -600). i tried appealing to their sense of
patriotism. i talked politely about this at a ham satellite chat i gave at
the recent central americam ham convention in El Salvador. i have been
reasonable and civil at all times. on the other hand, there has been no
reply whatsoever...no yes's, no no's, no maybe's, no "ok we've heard
you"'s. how can a resolution come about if my appeals aren't even
acknowledged? do you now see why i started this subject on the list? i did
*not* say overflow their mailbox, i said only write *if* you feel it merits
it. if the way i have proceeded seems non-gentlemanly, irrational or
non-constructive then please let me know it. i don't want to be like that.

cold wave you guys are getting up there comes as heavy rain here.
