Like wise I have worked Frank (K9CIS) many times, cw, always cw!  Very identifiable fist.

On an early morning FO-29 pass I was doing some SDR desense tests. I was 
looking for an open spot to do the tests so as to not interfere with 
anyone. I send a bunch of dots or dashes to check the downlink signal on 
the SDR and identify myself with the call sign.  There were some ssb 
contacts going on and some CW so I had to move from time to time.  It 
seemed as if I was often in danger of interfering with a cw contact so I 
would have to move frequently. The sdr latency is an issue when trying to 
monitor your cw downlink. I heard my callsign on the downlink and thought 
that a two second latency delay was a bit much. I finally figured out that 
someone was calling me - it was the person that I had been trying to not 
interfere with by moving away from his frequency. It was K9CIS. He deserves 
an award for working someone who was not even trying to make a contact. He 
is a very skilled operator who had no trouble with the fact that I was 
operating without any Doppler correction and I had been jumping (not 
swooping) around trying to stay off his frequency for some time.  Well done.
