Without the "instant gratification" nonsense and the snide comments about
S/P now being point and click....
It just makes common sense to ID often. In these days of point and click,
how many times are big gun stations suddenly besieged by a string of
dupes...as a result of a bad spot. Working through a string of dupes for zero
pointers is no help to one's score.
You give the call often and it happens less. When I was KH7XS out in
Hawaii I could always tell when I had been misspotted...the dupes would start
piling up and then I would slowly and clearly give the call after each QSO.
Usually if I was running a 250+ hour I would just give it every two or
Personally, you don't give your call and you're S-9, and after the third
time I'll call blindly. It's a dupe? Tough, give your call more often.
