Today I made a DX contact with TM0L (France) (IOTA FU-070) on 15 meters. On QRZ.com, TM0L references F5OIU as a silent key. I did get a signal report and gave him a SR and # as well. What gives with the SK?

Hi Art,

F5OIU is the manager for a former activation of that callsign in 2005.

It is not unusual for short callsigns to be re-used or re-issued--most USA 1x2 callsigns were previously held by someone else.
