hmmm... 20% of the satellite time. i think you have to go and listen to a pass 
that you find me on. i can say hello to everyone that i so desire in about 15 
seconds. then, i help those that are having difficulty making a contact. i have 
helped ht users complete contacts with stations they were trying to get and 
got stomped on. i helped n1jez in fn34 make a contact with k4qff/ti8 in ej79 
when the satellite just poped up for mike above horizon. i try to contact those 
that keep repeating their call and send them email and explain to them how 
to correct for doppler as they obviously do not hear the satellite. 

also, i said that i treat the fm satellites as if it were a contest. this is the 
reason why i stated...you have to be accurate and fast. not that it is a contest 
but if you treat it that way, you can maximize your contacts and contacts of 

i can't seem to find your callsign in my log at all. in fact, i can't find your 
callsign in the fcc database. are you sure you are a satellite operator or just 
someone here to cause trouble.
