That is exactly what I think. One must be balanced and think a little bit
about other stations that are always strugling to have one "only" qso.
Besides, there is one thing that I can't understand. When I was mobile with
a mag mount antenna and my TH-28 JPHaignere replied to me (that's true what
CT1EAT said :)). He heard TE and said "TE TE je vous ecoute". Imediately
several stations jumped in and I was not able to make the qso that time.
Fortunately I was able to do it some days later during a Saturday afternoon
(you can listen to that 5 watts/mag mount antenna qso by downloading the mp3
file on my web page). But what I am trying to say is:

What does a station calling out of turn ? Why a AA or KJ or TH or LB or
whatever calls when the cosmonaut is asking for a TE ? That is what I call
lack of respect and education. Those who do that should think a little bit
and find that selfish behaviour like this one turns what should be fun into
war IMHO.
