Hoi Paul,

Last weekend i heard the same "selfishness" on this site off the ocean. I special event station was activating a lighthouse with a special /p call, but he couldn't come thru on SO-50/AO-85. Some stupid stations didn't even listen, just calling and calling cq, while others are trying to finish a contact. And they just need to make a contact on EVERY pass with the same stations, * times/day, rather then having a new square/station/dxcc/special event in the log. Why? To have 1000 contacts in the logbook, but only with 5 or so different stations? I don't understand what's the fun for them,on doing something like that. 

So don't worry, it happens also on EU passes,hi.

Best 73's

At some point, naming names is required:

K4FEG is now on his third QSO for the pass, and fifth overall on FO-29.

Such selfishness is a poor reflection on a person's character.
