What difference the mode!!  Respond in kind....

If it is being trampled by strong uplinks, and you can't compete you 
can't compete....You are not helping anything by not TRYING TO TRANSMIT...

I've been on AO7 since the day it was launched, so I've had a little 
experience!!


LISTEN ON ANY FREQUENCEY ANYWHERE IN THE AMATEUR RADIO SPECTRUM 
BEFORE YOU TRANSMIT!  SATELLITE OR OTHERWISE....

Against the rules and dumb not to listen first....

Again, why the admonition???
