Bravo! I can't tell you how many times I've had to correct my call with a
CQ'ing station one or even two QSO's after-the-fact.
I find him CQ'ing...
I call him...
He answers with my call broken and sends exchange.
I respond with my call, my exchange
He TU's without giving my call and QRZ's or CQ's.
I call him again, but someone else answers his CQ/QRZ and he takes him
He finishes the contact (I even heard a couple of them break THAT call,
I call again
He answers with my call correctly and gives exchange.
(At this point, one of two things happen depending on how much 'snap' I
think the guy has:
1. I tell him my correct call from his nrXXX QSO, or
2. I just send the exchange
1a. Doesn't understand and sends exchange again, or
1b. Does understand and thanks me and goes on CQ'ing, or
2. TU's my exchange and takes the next caller.
Yes. The CQ station is not always right.
