H6? station on SO50 last night 0410z
did anyone get the full call sign of the H6? station operating from DK79 last night around 0410z on SO50? I was struggling with the suffix and finally got out of the way so others could work him. I heard XE1AO, WQ6C, K8YSE and K7ACS but I don't think any of us got his full call correct. Did it get sorted out after I lost the pass? I consider it a busted call so wont log it but I am curious what the call was?
thanks and 73,
Yes, HK3Z. I worked him. Hard to do when half the people throwing out their call signs on SO-50 couldn't hear the down link.

Oh boy, I looked at the UTC time and not the date....You said "last night" and I didn't even stop to think about day/date.
If you're talking about 0410 UTC on 4/13, then I was mistaken. My contact was on 4/12.
But DK89 is where Omar normally operates from. There is a 6H6IARU special event operating in Mexico... Maybe that's what you heard?
thanks Clayton, sorry I should have been clear on the date/time.
I think you are 100% correct about the call sign - that must have been it. I listened to my audio recording of the pass and the operator clearly was not phonetically spelling out each letter of the suffix, more like trying to pronouce IARU as a word.
hopefully I get a chance to work him again this weekend.
