The wallpaper also says "Priority usage may be VIP demos or special 
one-time events". Furthermore, the bird was in safe mode, so *nobody* 
not authorized by the control team should have been on the 
bird...anybody who was was QRMing by definition. If it was my satellite 
and it was in a period of published public nonavailabilty and I wanted 
to demonstrate it for the AMSAT Symposium (in the presence of apparent 
QRM) I'd feel justified in raising the priority of the demonstration.   
It's AMSAT Atlanta weekend, y'know. Wish I was there.
