I used to do the same thing - for our modest DXpeditions from FS 15 years 
ago I would QSL calls that looked busted on my end.  Now as we lurch into 
the 21st century I think I would still do that, as any DXpedition I go on is 
pretty unlikely to be rare enough so that people would have to resort to 
cheating for a DXCC credit.  Any country that I DXpedition to is unlikely to 
even require documentation to be accepted, hi.
