Besides that fact that the guys on 3870 seem to have a favorite conversation
piece... Their Amplifiers... They are all running near legal limit power
most of the time.

Bill some years back I lived in Las Cruces, NM and  operated on 3.870 plus
7.293 where I met many congenial hams. 
Bill/W7US, Dennis/W7QHO, Gary/ W7GMK and Lock/W1ZD all of which participated
in the 3.870 group.  When I moved from there to Texas, they took the
initiative to contact me by email as a friend a compatriot.  That remains
today and recently Lock and Gary looked me up to invite me back.

That is the kind of thing that makes friends.  It is not the attitude I
receive from the other coast.  I do wish I could communicate with the West
coast, but the group of SSBers Brian mentioned are adamant about causing

They set up shop there some years ago when propagation was such that they
could not hear you guys out there.  Now that they can, they constantly
complain about the "interference". 
Really the best alternative is to change frequency for small roundtables,
but that would be difficult to achieve.

Other than that, we could get on SSB and tell them we are going to join you
and get ready for the fight.  That is about our only options at this point.

I do wish civility prevailed in these matters but, sadly, it doesn't.
