If this needs to be in the rules, IDing at least once a minute seems
reasonable.  The good ops will continue to ID more frequently as the
pileup conditions allow and the bad ones will just have to not use QRZ as
their callsign once a minute.

Hi Bob,

Agree entirely. You hit the nail on the head. The idea is to ID only
frequently enough to keep the pileup to just a few callers. Requiring ID's
is a good idea, but it is a time issue, not a number of QSOs issue. A once a
minute rule works for me.
