    I got a QSL card from 7Q7ELA for a CW contact on 17 meters on the 18th day of September 2018 mode CW.

    I am posting this here as a notice, in case someone with a call similar to mine, is the actual ham who made the contact and can rectify the error with 7Q7ELA.

    Maybe he heard you.

    Just wanted to say hello, You are 5-9.

    It happens from time to time. Received a DX card in the last batch from a station I know I didn't work. I don't think it was for reasons other than a simple clerical error. K3XR is hardly rare DX. If the station has an email address on QRZ just advise him you can't confirm the contact.

    That's exactly what I did and just received a reply "Thanks for the update".

    Nothing more.

    Broken calls cause this from time to time. I could probably qualify for an award using Unearned/Unworked QSLs. Evidence of broken calls shows on dx clusters many times per day, and not just on CW. What really dumbfounds me is when a wrong call appears 3-4 times on the same cluster page before someone (actually copying) posts the right call. A symptom of monkey-see-monkey-do IMHO.

    Are you sure you weren't taking a nap and perhaps "sleep hamming"? :)

    I actually have an entry in the log from earlier in the year on 160 worked in the middle of the night. I don't remember working him, I don't remember writing him in the paper log.. but sure enough I did as it matched up in LoTW. It was even a new one for that band. I must have been 3/4 asleep!

    I still get bureau cards for a call that I haven't had -- and as far as I can tell, nobody else has had -- for over 20 years.

    That doesn't stop me from hanging the cards in my cube at work. :)

    Why do they come to you?

    I have a card from JG8NQJ/JD1 for a CW QSO 2016 Apr 22 with N8MA. :)

    I think it's because nobody else had that call after me, so when you look up that call on QRZ or wherever, the old call still returns to me as a "previous call."
