[CQ-Contest] Worked Before...

In my final log submitted, yes.  I always keep the original QSO in my base 

Say for example I work W1AR but log him as W1AA (I'm picking calls at 
random, sorry if I used yours as an example). Then I work W1AA and tell 
him he's a dupe.  He says no, so I work him and log him.

It never fails ... a month later I will get a card from W1AR wanting to 
confirm our QSO.  

This happened several times in ARRL DX SSB when I got going on a run on 
Sunday morning.  People in the USA who aren't contesters want to "help 
out" by giving me a few QSO's. They don't know USA can't work USA for 
points in the contest. Some are so persistent it's faster just to work 
them and move on.  Those are always inevitably the people who send me 
cards wanting to confirm the QSO.

Maybe there is some corollary to Murphy's Law connected with this?  :-)

73, Zack W9SZ
