[amsat-bb] Dupe contacts on SO-50

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,
