Just worked this island south of mainland Chile on 10 meters.
They were 59 for a short time here in Ohio.
Penquin country, DX for a fairly new ham.

I have read he is not an licensed amateur.  The claim is he's a CBer using 10 meters. 

No other Chilean ham's call follows that format.  BTW, I have worked him too but will no longer work him unless somebody gives me substantial proof he is an amateur.

He apparently holds a Chilean novice ticket. The Chilean government has reportedly been informed recently that this causes problems because the callsigns issued to novices don't conform with ITU regs.

I heard some guys harassing a Chilean station with a CD#### call on 10m SSB a couple of weeks ago. I tried to inform them that the call was valid, but they either didn't hear me or just chose to ignore me.

The direct source for the validity of any Chilean call is right here:

I'm happy to find out he is a legitimate amateur.  He's a good operator and doesn't bother anybody.  He shouldn't be harassed due to his unique call.

He's legitimate.  It's an entry level license.
