>KE9NA:  qsl qrz

So, the two or more Tango Foxtrots that reply (not to mention the Tango 
Limas, Whiskey Foxtrots and Lima Uniforms) all will think they worked 
you. And you'll wonder later why you got all these QSL cards that are not 
in your log....

You failed to give the complete callsign of the guy you worked! If you're 
calling CQ, that's a MUST. (I hate it when I call in, someone busts my 
callsign and I correct it, only to have the station reply, "QSL, QRZ?")
