After a number of acknowledgements along the lines of "QSL the
67 WI, you're......." I learned that some people were copying 6 7
out of "check 7" and somewhere the 9 just got lost in the noise.

I don't say "check" anymore......

I think Mike has the right answer. The "check Seven" part of the
"check Seven Two" was being copied as "Six Seven".  Very
astute on his part. Thanks for the help Mike.  I guess there is
some liability involved in mentioning the word "check" when
giving the exchange. THAT'S something I can use for next SS.

Thanks for the help fellas
