There's some interesting psychology among microwave hams.  Like many technical hobbies/professions, there are a lot of type-A personalities that must be dealt with.  You need to be aware of this, and make the best of it.  Lots of these guys are highly competitive, and severely driven to up-stage you and me.  This is OK, and cool, as long as you are aware, and make the best of the situation.  Lots of these guys like to get latched into the "transmit-only" mode, and make very poor listeners.  Listen to them, and don't expect to have a normal 2-way dialog.  You can learn and benefit from this behavoir, but you may have to swallow your pride a bit.  Just do it, and both of you will be better-off.   Conversely, if you are one of these type-A personalities, try to be helpful, without pissing off everyone.  We want and need your contributions to amateur microwave radio, but don't be an asshole.  Try to, at least, appear to listen once in a while, and your new-found audience will respect you more.

"Can't we all just get along?"

Be a true-friend.

Be helpful.

Try to be a good listener, even if the other guy is full of shit (at least for a little while...).

Be thankful for help that you receive from others.

Say thank you often.

Speak-up when you have something to offer others.

Remember, as we get older, there is a tendency to think we know more than we really do.  Lots of young whippersnappers are learning a lot of new stuff that us old-farts didn't even know was possible.

Even you will be an old-fart someday (if you haven't already inauspiciously joined the rest of us...)
