No one can search the DXpedition logs as they are right now to cheat. 
Unless they actually heard the other station (as in the W9SG example I 
gave) work them. Full QSO data is not displayed in any log search engine 
that I know of.

I worked a DXpedition a few years ago that was an all-time new one for me. 
All my QSO's (listed by band/mode) were in their log search engine but 
one.  It was a band I really wanted.  I guessed at a possible busted 
callsign and found ONE QSO by that callsign in their log (off by one 
character) - on the band/mode I was missing.

I sent to the QSL manager telling him this, with the QSO time that was in 
my log.  He contacted the other station in question and found out he 
didn't even chase DX. I had the correct date and time.  So I got a card 
for that QSO too.
