Jerry -

How about N5WSU? Maybe he had a typo in the callsign field in his software? 

In fact, it may be common--there's a Facebook entry from 2015 that lists both callsigns:

The other day I worked N5SWU who said his name was Martin. Unfortunately, the FCC database has no record and the original call sign belonged to a YL which expired in 2011.  Guess some wannabe ham was bootlegging the call sign. Sad.
