Only if you consider packet spotting not a part of operating. By now we are
all aware that packet spotting exists, it has existed for many years, and it
will continue to be a part of contest operating for the foreseeable
future... so learn how to handle it and make it a part of your skill set.

ONLY if you DON'T have the skill to know how to deal with it... ID more
often, call a couple CQ's with your call 2 or 3 times, and just work the
dupes that don't listen and get them out of the way... while adding a
comment about what your real call is again.
