I managed my one contact per FM bird also and then concentrated on AO-7
and VO-52. I didn't manage as many as George, but we did pretty well.
I found the FM birds to be much more orderly than in years past. I
thought that the one station who was handing out quick contacts to the
others worked very well. The REAL annoyance was the guy who was trying
to play traffic cop over the satellite saying "one contact per station!"
over and over and over again.
BTW, did anyone else hear some music being played over SO-50 during the
first FD pass, at about 1900Z?

Light travels faster than sound... This is why some people appear
bright until you hear them speak.

Heard LOTS of stations on the first passes of AO-27, SO-50, and AO-51
that obviously didn't read the new rules,
making one contact after another, even after being told "only ONE
per FM satellite!"
I did manage to make my one contact each, and then focused on AO-07 and
VO-52 for the rest of the contest. Made 20
more contacts on those. AO-07 is very interesting to listen to when
being hit with too much power on CW... hearing someone's
voice being "bounced" by the ditty-dots!
Sure did miss FO-29!!!
