Not much. How many stations do you hear on the uplink? Do you hear 
*any*? At most one or maybe even two? What percentage of the active 
stations in the footprint do you think that is?

There's nothing *you* can do on an individual basis that will make 
muchdifference. *Everyone* (well, a majority at the very least) in the 
footprint has to show a liitle discipline and courtesy for this to work.
