You think that's bad?  I wonder to this day how many QSL cards N3VAW got
because DX stations (oddly enough, primarily US-based ops) couldn't
understand that my old call's prefix was WN3.

And I wonder how many cards are sitting in the bureau for N3VAW or W3VAW for
the same reason.

You can't imagine how many times I've been put in logs as UO1HE, VO1SE,
V01HE, etc. I'll send a card to the station or manager and, if he puts 2 and
2 together, I get a card. If not, I have to wait until the next dxpedition.
Nothing to lose sleep over.
