Once upon a time, when I was new to DXing, I worked some station on 40 CW
at about midnight local (W9) time (about 0600Z). The station had a huge
pileup. I never got his call. He went QRT without giving it. I asked
"CL?" and some wise guy sent "A51JS". I, not knowing any better, sent a
card to Jim Smith for a QSL. He sent mine back noting he hadn't been
there for a couple years.
I never did find out who I actually worked!
