I see a new category of LID on the horizon: the operator who likes to say hello to his friends.
When this is over, will there be any satellite operators left who AREN'T LIDs for one reason or another?

Hello space bird enthusiasts,
I have noticed that certain stations on
busy SO-50 passes work the same
stations that they have worked on many
previous passes when they are in the
same grid. Dupe contacts.
This can prevent and has prevented
other stations from trying to work new
grids that happen to be on or perhaps
prevented them from working a new guy
that hasn't been on the satellites
before. On quiet passes I see no issues
with working the same station you've
worked hundreds of times before but on
busy SO-50 passes it is just
Maybe I'm just a curmudgeon but that's
my two cents.
Cheers & 73,
