The irony here is that everybody *knows* who the alligators are. Perhaps a
wall-of-shame query to Steve's database could produce a list of stations that
are beaconing; i.e. three duplicate packets with timestamps less than, say, 2
minutes apart. 

I can even envision automating an email to KBnYUK@arrl.net and KBnYUK@amsat.org 
and even a QRZ email address lookup, where KBnYUK is the hypothetical bad actor.
