Hi Jim,
If I am getting a lot of dupe calls I ask myself:

Is there a bum spot out on me on the cluster?
Am I unintelligible....crap signal, sending too fast?
Am I not signing often enough?

I worked CT9L, dunno if it was you ever as op when I did, and I cannot 
answer any of the above questions!!

Best wishes
Keith GM4YXI
