Another way to handle this is if he says QSO B-4 in any contest that doesn't
require a SN is to log him then and move on.  The times won't agree but he
has said Q B-4 so if your in his log and he is in yours all should be OK
except U might have his call in your log B-4 incorrectly. Then you get
dinged.   On SSB better to get it straight, ask what time Q B-4 and check it
