the reason you know this is because they are on the air a lot."

Not necessarily! If the "number" is taken out, did you work K3WW or K4WW?
Obviously many, especially in DX contest's, aren't sure? I'm well on my way
to "confirmed, but not worked" DXCC on 160 meters, as I have 10 cards
"confirming our QSO on 160 meters", that didn't work me?
Hint...if the WW station calling CQ is 28-30 wpm, it's isn't me!

C'Ya, Shelby
