This is a very good point. With a long skip I may not hear the other station
on my frequency and am running a risk that the station I just worked will not
have me in the log.
N6RO, Ken's advices for this case that I'm trying to follow are: (1) always
include the other station and your own callsigns in the exchange; (2) if there
is a shadow of uncertainty related to the exchange you've got back (if the
other guy does not follow Ken's recommendation), don't send TU, ask again!
