One and done -- It's been several years, does anyone think it has worked????
Maybe it is time to reconsider. I know it has convinced us to drop a
satellite station from our lineup. Kevin or I just do the hand and Arrow
for ten minutes get a Q and then pack it up.

The intent of the rule was to reduce the congestion on the FM satellites by
getting stations OFF them after making their one QSO, thereby giving more
stations the opportunity to make a QSO. So the way I interpret it, and the
I've operated since the rule was adopted (and I was one of those who hounded
ARRL to adopt it), is "ONE and you're DONE."
Not two, or twenty, and you only get to SCORE one...
