I am pretty sure the group has nailed what happened, when I would ask a 
station to QSY quite frequently I had preprogrammed a function key to 
say QSY to: XXXX frequency.... GUILTY.  sometimes I got lucky and others 
would hear me say QSY and they would not only work me on the first band 
but follow to the second even though it was not they particuarly I 
requestred... If I got a two-fer I would procede to try a CQ on the new 
freq...sometimes I started a run...if not I went back to the old like 
nothing had happened and hoped there would not be a freq fight!

I am pretty sure something like this is what WN3VAW experienced...had I 
hear his call this past weekend, as a CQ-Contest regular, I certainly 
would have assumed he was in the NAQP and would have called him.

By the way, HNY all you CQ-Contest readers...I hope you all now know 
that it is only 102 days until the Florida QSO Party...
