It was O for Oscar as per his phonetics, and not a zero.  Perhaps it's required in his country while working through a satellite?  It's interesting that his first name is Oscar.

Awesome! I called him but had another station reply to me. I'll keep an 
eye out for him on the air and try to find an e-mail to set up a 
schedule. I've worked LU on AO-40 and I think AO-10, but I don't think I 
was able to get a QSL for those QSOs. I assume you worked him en Espanol?
