I personally will not log a dupe...Can cause op's to get lazy...I had
several people tell me "Sorry, I wasn't sure if we worked before or
not..." in ARRL 10 metre last weekend...That means THEY did not get it
right the first time, or wanted me to take the time to look and tell
them whether we have worked or not...Not my job and a big waste of time
for me...I say log it correctly the first time...I've spent many minutes
getting reports sent back over and over to MAKE SURE it is logged right
in my log the first time...(One QRP Isreal station comes to mind... :-)
Dupes are considered blemishes in my log...I therefore use F7 very often
and then move on...That's my own opinion...

73, and C U in the RAC Canada Winter Contest Dec 29th...It's a fun
