I was in the pileup to work W1AW/0 in South Dakota today. I already have them in the log, but I can’t seem to resist a good pileup these days. Anyway, after I worked them, instead of the normal “TU 73”, I got “W2LJ QRP?”
I answered “YES QRP 73 DE W2LJ” and I got a dit dit in reply.
I guess it was somebody who knows of me. The only other time that happened was when I worked W1AW/1 in New Hampshire, but I knew going in that Dave N1IX was the operator. Dave is a superb op and fellow Fox hunter.
It would be interesting to know who was behind the key. It sure makes you do a double take when you work a station and the operator is familiar with you, but yet you have no idea as to whom you may have worked.
