On The Air: October 2013

Recently, I left Keokuk, Iowa and was told to squawk 1675 on an IFR flight plan and contact Kansas City at 2,000. Upon contacting Kansas City they asked me to verify squawk 1675
Kansas City: “One One One Six Zulu X-Ray, verify squawk code of 1675.”
Me: “Negative, I have 1657; I think I put in the time instead, good correction. I’ll change and ident.”
Kansas City: “Thanks, this is a first for me.”
Me: “Same here.”
After a pause, another pilot: “So what time is it?”
Kansas City: “Eleven minutes after original incorrect squawk.”
