[CQ-Contest] SS SSb - bogus call

Unfortunately the practice that Dave experienced below is becoming quite
common on 10 Meters. In the last several contest's I've been called by
CB'ers who just make up a call. 10 is loaded with these bogus stations. I
had one guy answer my CQ who supposedly was in YB land. Of course his echo
box and spanish accent gave him away immediately. It got so bad in the last
contest, the CB'ers QRM'ed me when I wouldn't answer them. I hope the
contest committee log checkers can weed these guys out, cause it's gonna
get worse as the sunspots get higher.
