There's an old Dilbert cartoon in which Wally is lying on a mental health 
therapist's couch (with his ever-present cup of coffee).  He says to the 
therapist: I keep dreaming about work, and since I sleep at work I'm dreaming 
about sleeping, and it's freaking me out.

So, here on the reflector is NQ4I -- a good guy, and reasonable -- purporting a 
friend who operated ARRL SSB from YN and made 3100 QSOs without ever being 
spotted; and nobody else on the reflector heard the guy.  And here is VE7FO -- 
a good guy, and reasonable -- asking if the Anatolian RTTY test is 160m-only 
this year.

3100 phantom QSOs???  Work Turkey, but only on 160m digital???  I'll admit to 
being pretty ignorant, but these are freaking me out.  I keep wondering if I am 
going to wake up and discover that I wasn't even asleep -- or that I missed 
March and it's already time for LeConcours du Poisson d'Avril.

I am really interested to see how these turn out.
