The easiest thing to do is add or slightly change the comment field when
sending the spot to make it NOT a duplicate.

60 minutes is the period that was arrived at, after some debate, when it was
first put in. I am open to changing the default, however, people will need
to put their point of view to make it happen.

In the meantime set/var $Spots::dupage = 1800 will (for instance) set it to
30 mins. I would be not recommend it is set to much less, because some of
the looping periods that we occasionally get on the network can be as long
as 20 mins.
