[CQ-Contest] Sometimes, even sending your call every time, doesn't help...

I NEVER acknowledge a station who doesn't have my call correct.  If 
he/she comes back with N8XO, N8XL, or anything other than N8XX I just 
send N8XX again, sometimes twice.

I'd say that >99.44% of the time they get my call correctly after the 
1st, 2nd, or nth time.  If the other op chooses NOT to send my call 
correctly, I move on.  I get a few NIL's even then because the other 
fellow has a typo, etc.

QRP >99.44% of the time
