[CQ-Contest] Logging question

How does he know you worked him those two times and you got his call 
wrong? Your OH6LI call sign is not registered on eQSL. Maybe you were 
using a contest call that is registered on eQSL?

Otherwise, I don't see how he could state that you logged his call sign 
wrong. LoTW will not show your log entries to anyone but you (or an ARRL 
LoTW administrator).

IF my log showed a QSO with a station with a very similar call sign at 
the time, band, and mode purported, personally I would update my entry 
in LoTW, but not my contest log. I would consider it a human error on 
one end or the other. Maybe he had programmed his function keys with the 
wrong call sign and didn't catch this right away? Lame operating on his 

All that said, if I received a response like you mentioned after the 
first email exchange, I'd tend to let him "go pound sand" as someone 
else stated!
