Amen Margaret!  FM voice birds (including FM on the shuttle and ISS) is 
just about
the best way to create ill will I can think of.  If it is designed to 
promote interest
in ham radio or ham radio satellites,it is doing anything but,
it is negative in its approach.

Leave the FM for digital, and digital only....I've been screaming this for 
15 years!!
