So, just to get this out first - I'm quite new to CW and have most of the lack of skills / poor copy / clumsy QSO abilities that implies. However, I'm not deaf, and there's no doubt I'm hearing what I describe below. I'll get on a frequency.... 20m since that's the antenna I have to work with... and put out a CQ. 3x3, I end with a "K", nothing weird or even incoherent there. (Hey, sending, especially with a straight key, is pretty easy). My goal at present is to make at least 1, CW QSO every day to improve my skills. It's working and I'm having fun. About once a week though I'll have something a bit odd happen. I get on a frequency.... I listen... I listen some more... nothing. Send "?", listen. Send "QRL?", listen. Nothing. OK, CQ CQ.....check RBN ok good my signal is getting out, hey look there's that skimmer in AZ who shows me at +32dB... Then it happens. Loud and strong, I get my own callsign back at me. Honest 559 to 599. *Just* my callsign. Sometimes 2x or 3x.... sometimes just once. I'm all excited, oh good, someone to QSO with and their signal isn't buried in QSB! So I will come back with "QRZ de VE7JBX? K" or "STN CALLING GO AHEAD?" or "? ? de VE7JBX K" or something like that. Sometimes... they then send me my own callsign again... but still nothing else. Other times they just go silent. Just had it again this morning. My own call back at me, once, clear and strong... then nothing. Anyone else get this? Am I supposed to know what this means?
