This evening I had a great qso on 7.026Mc with a "ham" in New York named Mike. He was running an FT-101ZD and using a vertical antenna. His fist was good, his speed only about 7 WPM. I sent him 599 he sent me 579.  His call is WA2NOL.
The problem is - when I looked up that call on qrz.com and on e-ham and at arrl.org - it shows that there is no such ham.

I'm pretty darn sure I copied his call right at that speed! I know that is the call I sent back to him each time and he accepted it. In my note pad I can find it written four different times, each time the same. It is the right number for NY. And, I would be surprised if a boot leg op went through the trouble of learning CW.

My assumption is that the OMs license expired and he doesn't know it. I did a google on his call and found that he was also worked in a contester's log in 2005.

Could someone with an old call book look up WA2NOL and post his contact info. Thanks es 73, W8WZ

Heard him this evening on 7050.75 khz. I found this page via google search after not finding his call on QRZ.com .  I suppose he doesn't know his call is expired ?

Well, fellows...not that anyone will read this, 3 years later...

I just worked WA2NOL, Mike, in White Plains, New York on 7038.9 KHz CW.
He said he was running a Kenwood TS-820 at 100 watts to a G5RV.

The QSO seemed normal enough.

Today's date is 07 SEP 2008 and WA2NOL only shows up hr and an online log or two.

Hmmm... reckon Mike is an angel?

I just heard someone calling CQ on 3550 using the callsign WA2NOL. WA2NOL is not an active callsign.
