Busted call.

MM3AWD worked MM3AWA not himself.   They have the same last name, live 
in the same town.  Those contacts were on SSB and I think he worked AWA 
on all bands.  He did work AWA on CW on 20m CW 14079. I don't even know 
what log was reclassified anymore.   Not one of the SSB contacts had rig 
data.  For what it is worth.
