Terrestrial QRM to FM satellites

Today on passes of both SO-50 and AO-27, there were
terrestrial QSOs going on.  It was especially bad on AO-27
with a few people clearly unable to get through due to the
strength of the QRM.  It almost sounded like there was a
repeater setup on 145.850 with Roger beeps happening.
So, what is the "proper" thing to do in situations like this?  

Ignore it and talk to anyone who can overpower them?

Stay off the air and hope you can hear callsigns that you can
ask carefully to QSY?

Something else?

I'm pretty new to this stuff, and I'd like to do the right thing.
