[amsat-bb] Field Day Question

Please tolerate another newbie question. I know that during the upcoming 
Field Day, participants are being encouraged to limit themselves to one
contact on SO-50 or to use the linear birds when possible.

I'm chasing grid squares towards Satellite VUCC and other awards. Is it 
acceptable and good operating practice for my station to make multiple 
contacts during
FD on the linear birds? Seems like a great chance to pick up grids that 
would otherwise not be active on the birds, but I don't want to be a LID.

What would be the best practice for an operator like myself during FD? I 
won't otherwise be participating in the contest. Again, my thanks for 
the advice
and counsel of more experienced operators. Everyone on the birds has 
been great and helpful so far, especially K4FEG!
