I think that some instances of this may be explained by the logging
I believe some logging programs can be configured to send a packet spot
for a new station worked (Or a Specific Keystroke used to Spot a
station). For S&P this helps others on packet by keeping the packet
window populated, but bad if you are running.
I noticed that there were a few instances where there were several DX
spots for exactly the same frequency - apparently the running station
was sending packet spots for stations that worked him. I'm sure this
was un-intentional, but would explain why you follow a packet spot and
it turns out to be someone else....
