Jonathan Rubby, Fake call WQ873 also tired to scam me. Gave himself away by the bad English he used in the email When I asked for his amateur radio call sign he responded that it was KS4KC. Looked on QRZ and KS4KC is registered to DONNA K FRIESE, KS4KC, SAVANNAH, GA. When I told him who the call belonged to, he failed to respond.
