One very easy way to encourage folks to ID would be to NOT "Tailgate" the stations who do NOT ID between each contact.

If a station doesn't get a call immediately, the op WILL ID

Otherwise, "patience hath its virtue."

Can't figure it out.

- His fist (OK, his computer's fist :) ) is good.
- His signal is strong but perfectly clean.
- He's not trying to run anyone off their run frequency.
- He seems to copy the callers just fine.

So why is he so ashamed of his call?

I just worked one Zone 33 station for the THIRD TIME on 10 meters.  Because he 
goes TWO TO THREE MINUTES between IDs.

Rules suggestion for the 2013 WW:
- Each S&P QSO counts 15% extra -- 1.15 points for own continent (unless NA in 
which case 2.30 points), 3.45 points for other continent.
    (those wishing to claim the 15% must submit a log with exact frequencies in the 
Cabrillo file, so the committee can identify which QSOs were S&P.)

That may more or less make up for the time S&P operators waste waiting for some 
of these guys to ID.
