Some operators identify so seldom that you have no choice but to work 
them first, and then try to find out the call.  If you wait for them 
to identify, the pileup doubles in size because of the packet spots.

Is it OK to see a callsign on the packet screen and work the guy 
before he identifies, but not if you don't have packet?
