Dumb newbie question - testing out DX Summit during the recent ARRL CW DX 
contest, I happened upon a spot entered by a Canadian station for P75P, 
with the country indicated as North Korea.

Later, I noticed that nobody else during the contest had spotted a North 
Korean station, which made me suspicious.

Even later I noticed that there was another station spotted that was PZ5P, 
from Surinam.

QRZ lists a PZ5P, but no P75P.

Should I assume that the North Korean spot was a busted call?
