Good day all. I just received an email purporting to be from K7RSH@winlink.org . Stating that he/she is testing via packet their new radio setup. I responded "Received". Problem is that the K7RSH call sign does not exist at the FCC. Furthermore, according to QRZ, there have been 7 recent searches for that call sign.
Not sure if it's a typo, of if we have a phish / spoof happening, but I figured that I might mention it.
