    My buddy Hank K8DD (SK) used to use Duck as his name for most CW contests.

    I did a few minutes of NAQP today and talked to him on 20 only when I asked him his name again he said, "DudeDudeDude". Then I said okay but what's your name? Should I log this?

    Over the last few years, it has become common practice by many NAQP operators to substitute the name of a recent Silent Key, or a ham who has recently become very ill or disabled. It’s meant to honor them and honor their memory.

    It should also be pointed out, for the benefit of those who bemoan the repetition and other “lying” that they allege “all” contesters do, that this means that you can’t assume what someone’s name (part of the NA contest exchange) will be. Even if you have a database showing what it was in years past. So the op MUST copy what is sent, not what they think should be sent.
