Or you might try this one (with the simulator first) if you like it and can
remember it:

Assume DL1DUP is a dupe that called you.
TR sends QSO b4 and erases the call.
Press Ctrl+R ("restore"). It's back again.
Type OK behind it and hit Enter.
TR thinks he is DL1DUPOK which is no dupe and works him.
While TR sends DL1DUPok599..., go and remove the OK.
Go on with the QSO as usual.
(TR will probably send the CALL OK NOW message when QSLing, but who cares.)
