That doesn't always work. In a recent contest, a running station 
confirmed my exchange. However, I hadn't sent an exchange yet. He then 
went on to work another station. Since I hadn't sent my exchange, we 
didn't have a valid QSO. I called him back and got B4. I tried calling 
him later and got B4. Since we didn't have a good QSO, he didn't get in 
my log.
