[amsat-bb] Dupe contacts on SO-50

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 disruptive.

Maybe I'm just a curmudgeon but that's my two cents.

Cheers & 73,
