Well thanks to everyone who gave me helpful hints and ideas 
I did almost make a contact today!

I know I got into the SO50 today at about 11:10 - 11:11 est (local time) I heard some one give my call back and a brief report
Unfortuntally at the same time doppler shifted on me and I wasn't fast enough to keep up

I am using a th-d7ag and unfortunally there is not a way to program the odd band split in memory (at least not that I have found) so no matter what you have to hit two buttons. Anyways I diegress 

I replayed my recording serveral times and think - I think 
The man who came back to me was ND9M in FM29 (delaware)
Which would be cool if it was - 
I was not able to complete the contact - so that doesn't really count does it

After all of my frustration thou I am still chulking this one up to a WIN!!

I would like to confirm somehow that it was ND9M that heard me
So I am posting here :-)

Thanks again to all who have helped!
