WA3UKC 7200 LSB 02:32 UTC 27 May 2021.

02:32 Calling CQ With YL Voice.
02:35 QSO with KB3DOR, now in male voice. It turned out he had been using the recorded voice of "Amanda" to send his CQ calls.

Reminded me of an article in Popular Electronics in the 1960s about a ham who had a neighbor YL doing his CQs for him in the hope of attracting DX stations. This was the first time I'd actually heard this done in practice!
Location: Northern Virginia. Realistic DX-398. Longwire antenna.

eQSLs appreciated. hhb9000 [at] hotmail [dot] com

Wow ..... never heard of this one. Does this Skirt the Rules against someone else saying your callsign?

I know a guy that had his wife say his callsign into the microphone to break through a big pile-up.
It was very effective.
