Well, I know exactly which Zone 33 station you're talking about, and his
habits on 10 this morning were exactly the same as they were yesterday.


He's not the only station doing this, but most are sending their call after
every 3rd or 4th QSO, or once a minute. rarely more than a gap of 2 minutes
between sending the call.   But our friend '33'?  Close to 10 minutes
between, when I heard him earlier.




But I'm sure that enough stations skip working him, because they don't know
who he is. or dupe him multiple times, for the same reason. it will more
than compensate for the time he "saves" by not sending his call frequently.

I'm at the K9CT contest station. We are doing a Multi/2 with four stations.
All four are programmed to send "TU K9CT" at the end of each QSO. Short but
gets the ID in after every QSO. I've worked a few stations that skip the
"TU" and just send their call. That's fine with me.


But I have encountered those stations that are not sending their calls. I
skip over them. Their loss.

I'd go several steps further, Doug. Personally, I believe the Contest
Committee should mandate that every station be required to give his call
after every QSO. Today, I figure I totalled 30 minutes (perhaps more)
waiting for guys to give their calls. So it will cost a total of 10
minutes or whatever and scores will be down slightly. But it sure

I don't operate with any assistance and I've got to say it is particularly
annoying to sit and listen to 10 or 20 QSOs before the other guy gives his

I won't bother to name names here but I do have a list of offenders.

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.

(am I serious or not? Take your pick..)
