[CQ-Contest] QSO Party Calls

Why would other stations think you were in MN? Your call doesn't 
indicate that. If you were calling CQ and a non-MN calls you, just put 
him in the log (or not) and move on. Granted, the QSO won't count, but 
that shouldn't be a problem. When you send your state in the exchange, 
the other station should realize you aren't in MN.

I don't know what your CQ was, but if you called CQ MN, or something 
similar, most stations should get the idea.
