I use a two call rule.

When I find a station to work, if I know his call and not a dupe, great! 
if i don't,, I'll call anyway, and if he's a dupe his loss of time, too 
bad,, say who you are.

And at any rate be I know who it is or not, I call and only try twice if 
I do not get them in two tries. I move on, either the pile is too big or 
propagation isn't good enough. and try again later, on the next pass 
through the Band.
