Seems more likely these stations weren't "copying" anything - they
already knew who you were, could recognize their own call at 60WPM and
didn't care about the report (it was always 5NN, oops, 599, right?)

Engage in any QSOs at that speed?

I wonder what other variables contributed to your "revelation"
(propagation, local time-of-day, Monday Night Football).
