I don't know which is worse, the satellite hogs stepping on others while 
using high power earth stations or someone who refuses to change his flawed 
operating technique and instead aspires to become part of the problem he is 
complaining about.   

Get an Arrow antenna, hook it to your HT, and you'll be pleasantly surprised 
how easy it can be.   :-)
