Don't count your chickens before they hatch. I, too, received a plaque 
for RTTY Roundup, anonymous sponsor. The odd thing about it was I 
didn't operate the RR in 2002!
I sent a note to WS7I, who contacted ARRL. They thanked me for 
notifying them, and told me they got some of their files crossed between 
2001 and 2002 and it was a mistake. They're supposed to issue a call 
tag and have it picked up, but nothing yet, after a week...
