As a 100% S&P'er with (sigh) less-than-perfect copy skills, this is
why I prefer you to tell me "K6RFM SRI WRK B4" than to just work me
again.  I can usually figure out where I busted the call and fix it
(yes, I think this is legit -- the info was all passed between us on
the ham bands during the contest..) while if you just work me again
I'll end up with a bogus QSO in the log.

It *does* help if you say "worked before at 2243" "worked
before yr nr 023" etc.

Rich, K6RFM
