Courteous AO-51 Operation

With the ever increasing madhouse that AO-51 is becoming, and with 
spring just around the corner adding more users to the satellite, I've 
typed up a fairly simple "do's and don'ts" guide to working AO-51. The 
guide focuses more on etiquette and operational guidelines rather then 
technical ideas, because there are already some excellent guides out 
there for the new user to read up on.

This was more or less conceived one night in #amsat on irc.dishnuts.net 
while discussing the operational issues on AO-51. The satellite is a 
very good, very easy satellite to get into, however, the more people jam 
on, the harder it is for people to use it. So, myself, John (KB2HSH), 
Charles (N3CRT), and Mark (KF6KYI) all tossed around ideas on what is 
more a less a good "code of conduct" for AO-51 operation.

Without further adieu:
