This actually happened, in reverse.
K5YG and I were told this story over 35 years ago by an
accomplished contester and superb CW op who is still
On OSCAR 6 he was called by UP2OM, and obediently moved up! After a few
iterations he figured
out what was gg on, sat still and had a QSO.
I thought it was hilarious. Still do.

"There's a Russian station UA3QSY (or RA3QSY, not sure about his prefix)
Imagine a DX station working split on CW and this guy not realizing it's
a split thing actually transmits on DX's frequency. How do you tell him
to QSY ?
UA3QSY QSY !
and he goes: R R R de UA3QSY UA3QSY 5NN 5NN de UA3QSY k
and then everyone on the frequency keys: QSY QSY QSY
and he goes CFM de UA3QSY UA3QSY 5NN 5NN .....and so on forever
... he-he-he-he ... LOL !!!"
