Your partner leads the K asking for reverse count; you play the 9 to show an odd number.

Your partner continues with the A and you play the 10 to ask for a diamond switch.

Your partner continues with the Q, what is going on?!

Time to look at yourself in the mirror; you got this manoeuvre wrong!

Put yourself in your partner's shoes:

1) you didn't support hearts so there is a good chance you don't have 3 of them

2) with T9 doubleton you would play the 9 and then the ten...

 

Signal your length with the T and then its clear that you have an odd number and the 9 asks for a diamond switch; remember we are playing reverse count.

 

The 12 imps this cost us should help me remember!
