[CQ-Contest] FT8/FT4 duplicates in FD?

Hi all,

Ray N6HE here.

I've figured out to avoid same-band duplicates in the upcoming FD using
WSJT-X, but I wonder how many others will do the same? 

Unless you start a new WSJT-X log (which fixes this), stations worked in the
past will show up as worked before, as well. 

With many FD stations worked already and in your "contest log" (and
therefore in your WSJT-X log, as well), nobody will know who's a dupe. I'm
guessing there will be a lot of duplicates worked (and folks taking credit
for the Q) with the operator none the wiser. Few will use a regular FD
logging program real-time and enter data twice to see if they're a dupe.

Your thoughts?
