Last ARRL CW I was called for more than 60 DUPES in a monoband 15 mts
entry.incredible!, why this?


I thought many things:


.          maybe a DXCC hunter that want to be sure I am in his log to
confirm the QSO

.         Or a station that really copied bad my call in the previous QSO

.         Or a boring guy that in the second day start calling again because
of low contest activity


During the second day I stopped logging them and started sending QSO B4, I
was afraid I can have a penalty to log too many dupes.


Sunday afternoon at 15:30 I had a bad spot, and many stations I worked
before started calling me, included very know callsigns!, is incredible how
they call you without listening before.  I have a list of this guys waiting
to see they "ASSISTED" post on the log submission site J
