I have heard this 4Z5RR call sign on several occasions.  Once, he even 
repeated my call sign back perfectly.

This station is active when parts of Central America, the Caribbean, and 
northernmost South America are in mutual footprint with my QTH in East 

It doesn't seem like a valid operation but I have no way to verify it.  
It would be nice to get a corrected call sign for this station.

The accent the guy has sounds like he is from the islands, and he doesn’t seem to know how to work the birds, so I suspect that this is a bootleg call.  Does anyone know about this guy?  There is no way we worked him from Israel on SO-50.
