[CQ-Contest] NILs hurt

Hearing QSO B4 is so annoying when calling a station that is not in your
log. It happens to me almost every contest. I work the dupes that call me!

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.
