discourteous operators

tonight on the 0310 pass of uo-14, panama was on the air. mahana, w5bts, 
tried to make a contact with him and while she was doing that everyone 
started calling her instead of giving the panama station a chance to complete 
the qso. she said she was trying to work the panama station and they 
continued to call her. 

there was also another female operator on the air that never stopped calling 
people during the entire pass. i guess everyone except mahana has worked 
panama. it is past mahana's bedtime and we had her stay up to try and 
make the contact. really poor operating practices some of these operators 
have and what they are showing our young operators of the future.
