[CQ-Contest] Sorry

I had a phone call a few minutes ago and the fellow asked if I was operating
the TQP contest. I said I had been on earlier this morning but had stopped
for lunch. He said that someone was using my call and continuously send CQ
TQP on CW on 15 meters. He let me listen to it and it sure sounded like me.

I came back to the shack and it was in the auto mode and sending CQ. I
couldn't get the computer to quit sending without shutting it down and
restarting it.  I checked the auto send button and it was not set! I guess
RF had gotten into it and crashed the computer.

Please accept my apologies for the QRM.  I have been using this same
computer/rig and contest software for years and have had no problems.

All I can say is I'm am sorry!
