Yeah, that's right. Now that I think about it, I started to do that mostly
as I got a little more savvy.
It's when I send my correct call, twice, and my exchange, to try to be
quick, and the DX station repeats my call -- busted again -- and calls QRZ
that I have had to stick around and beat it into his/her head.
So you're right on, don't send my exchange in that case to make it more

Why would he say QRZ if he has your call wrong?
Do you give him a report even though he came back to and said your callsign
You should not give him a report.
If you give him a report you have to then try to get his attention again to
correct the callsign because once he has your report he thinks the contact
So you will have to work the station again - although this wastes your time
and it might not be possible because of changing bands conditions or if the
station leaves the band or if the pileup gets bigger.
The solution is to not send your exchange until the CQing station sends your
correct callsign back to you - so it could go like this:
PILEUP: KJ709AJKLDS900JALKSDJ K7RAT
DX: K7RAT 5NN KW
6tr: 5NN OR
PILEUP: JKAJDLKJFKLJDKF K5TR KJKLAJD;
DX: K5TJ 5NN KW
DX: K5TA 5NN KW
DX: N5TR 5NN KW
DX: K5TR 5NN KW
5TR: 5NN TX
By not sending your exchange but sending your call again you are letting the
other station know that something is wrong. And you stand a chance of
getting him to send your correctly copied call - if you give him the
exchange the op will have all he needs from you and will move on to the next
QSO with your callsign logged incorrectly.
