1 - The chaos and mayhem on the FM SATS continues unabated.

2 - Because of Clint's Presentations, new users are added and proper
     operating procedure are often not followed.

3 - That brings into question whether the Presentations are adequate
      and/or need tweaking or more emphasis.

4 - Suggestions from experienced/active AMSAT Members are rejected
     and/or ignored out-of-hand and appear to be unwelcome.

Those are my two cents.

I would like to put my two cents worth into this discussion. I have listened to Clint's presentation and he DOES stress good satellite operating procedures. All of what Bob suggested is already in the presentation. With that being said, rudeness is out there in ham radioland. Tune into any contest to hear rudeness. Same for special event stations. Yes, some people are rude on the satellites. Look up their call sign on QRZ and you will see that some of them are seasoned operators who should know better. Rude people are going to step on anyone they can to make a contact. Remember "Winning is everything."  It's a sad fact of life, but not Clint's fault. He does try to stress proper operation. There are rude, selfish people and disruptors out there.
