Agree,  The rules state, Stations are limited to one (1) completed QSO on any single 
channel FM satellite.

So  maybe the ARRL dhould DQ these people when they submit their logs?

I hope so.

Granted this doesn't stop someone operating just to make contacts and 
don't send in their logs for FD.

But wow it would sure make my 5A group remember that rule if after doing 
all this work (Fun) to have it listed as a DQ because of breaking that 
rule that is soo clearly stated.
