Perhaps he mis-copied your call.
It is very, very easy to mis-copy a call. A couple of years ago, I got
dinged about 10% in the SS Phone for a handful of calls I mis-copied the
prefix on. You can bet the next year I was paying more attention....
SS is the ONE contest where it might be expedient to send QSO B4 instead
of just workin' 'em. The exchange is long and hard enough that a
duplicate contact is expensive.
Frankly, though, it's better to just work everything and let the contest
judges sort out what counts and what doesn't....
