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!
