I wonder if anyone has ever tried emailing him. I've never had any problems
working him (he's one of these guys who will call into any pileup), however,
I usually hit the dx cluster with a correct callsign but a lot of folks have
complained about him busting their calls. My guess is that he is using a
code reader and didn't realize his exchange wasn't correct.

Thanks for the clarification, Ken.
After receiving RR, I asked for a repeat and he sent RR again. Wonder if his
sidetone was turned off...
