    Not sure why it didn't copy correctly the first time. I was referring to the attachment.

    It is an example of poor operating by constantly beaconing on the ISS digipeater every one to two seconds.

    These folks were in the neighborhood today cleaning some carpets. They produced no noticeable QRM.

    If I operated that mode maybe I would rant about it. But I am only ranting about the specific area I witnessed the issue ;)

    Oh snap...he owns the satellite now and wants to dictate how they are used...how in the world can you dictate if you hear or dont hear a call you have worked before? This is a prime example of an old grouchy ham radio operator in the making!!
