On 2/18/01 at 0122Z I worked a station in Singapore on CW on 21037.   At first I copied his call as 9V1NAC.  Remember, in a pile up and at 40 wpm, you don't always get it right the first time....

Second time around I thought his call was 9V1Y? and since it was contest weekend, another station covered him up and I missed the call.

I have no doubt that I am in his log because I clearly heard him send   k3cdq 599, which is the report we all get in contest....(HI)

If someone else was around that evening, I sure would appreciate knowing what call you copied from him

best 73

You need to get hooked up with a DX Cluster!  For 21 MHz specifically, try:

Post your question, give date and approx time and 9V1?? call and somebody will probably tell you who it was.

Which is worse here guys the shabby operator or the guy telling him to circumvent the entire process by reading a computer screen.

Cute, K1TA.

The original requestor did not say why he wanted to know the callsign, so I don't believe we can assume any malicious intent...

If you're a contester, you know that all the contest dupe/log programs (CT, TR, WriteLog) have Supercall Partial functions that allow you to plug in a partial callsign and have the computer fill in the "probable" balance, based on a data base of previous contest participants.  

Don't think the contest winners aren't using this function!

There are not so many 9V1 active in contests.
It has been 9V1YC (most probably)
