Club Station Elmering & SO-50

Club stations, I think it is important that you educate your operators on the proper etiquette and protocol for using FM satellites.  Calling CQ and repeatedly giving your call during prime time SO-50 passes is not only bad form, it interrupts other stations on the satellite who are engaged in QSO’s. 

If your club station uses a TS-2000, it is important to note that a birdie severely handicaps your use of SO-50 unless you certain corrective measures. 

Today I witnessed two separate club stations behaving badly.  By email I have offered them some suggestions as to how they may rectify this situation.
