I may be hated for this but I have to ask, if you make a contact and you
get the call wrong so you would not get a QSL card because you can't mail
the right person is it really fair to use another medium to search out the
correct call in order to secure the contact for award reasons?  I always
thought the QSO had to be a successful exchange of at least the call signs
over the air to count as a contact.  Please correct me if I'm wrong.
