Today there was a situation on ref69C that prevented or made it difficult for other users to enter a conversation with the others already conversing.

QUICK KEYING makes it very difficult for others to break into a conversation. We are all guilty of that at one time or another.

During this same time a new user was trying to get some assistance. He was recognized and there was another station that tried to break in 4 times to and was eventually recognized. The conversation was turned over to that party. When that party unkeyed he discovered that someone else had doubled with him and he was never heard.

Please try to leave a 3 second pause between transmissions.Quick keying is a killer for D-STAR transmissions.
