Why did you use your clubs call sign?
I hate to burst your bubble, but I hope you realize that those contacts, as exciting as they were for you, will not count towards your personal DXCC count. Sorry!My contacts were made on 20m and I'm a Tech.

I have been licensed for nearly 20 years and I still get just as excited now over hearing a DX station come back with my callsign as I did back in 1992!
You're kidding, right?Unless you were working some type of event - there would be no reason for you to use the club call sign - other then to try to cheat the system and get on the HF without being properly licensed.
And what is your callsign???You need to realize that you do not have any privileges as a amateur - using a club call sign beyond the privileges allocated to you by your license.
This is the rule that allows anyone, licensed or not, to operate with Extra Class privileges during Field Day (assumng that the callsign being used belongs to an operator with Extra Class privileges).§ 97.105 Control operator duties.
(b) A station may only be operated in the manner and to the extent permitted by the privileges authorized for the class of operator license held by the control operator.
You did nothing wrong, and neither did the Extra class control operator. Or your son, either, for that matter...I understand I am still NEW to the hobby but I don't need anyone to shoot me down for experiementing with other privileges while under supervision of someone with a higher class.
I just checked three different threads, randomly, and Howdy all was on all three badmouthing or lecturing. THAT'S not what we are all about. I know I am a noob here but it doesn't take me long to recognize that south end of a north bound donkey! Sounds to me like it's time to implore some negative moderator driven reinforcement.
