Yes and no. It depends. Quite often, I end up calling stations multiple 
times when a) I copied their call incorrectly either the first or second 
time, or b) when they have failed to give their callsign when working 
multiple stations.

I wonder if the complaints about all the duplicate contacts come from 
operators who give their call every 10 minutes or so (whether they need 
to or not <grin>).

If one guy is insistant he isn't in the log -- there's absolutely no 
reason not to work him.
