You can be suspicious about pretty much any North Korean spotted.  They're 
not a very active crowd.

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?
