I don't know - there can be a variety of reasons for turning up on or near 
someone's frequency without realizing it.  One I encounter all the time is that 
the other station is down off the low-side of my filter response, approaching 
zero-beat, so his signal is hugely attenuated.  On the higher bands, I may not 
know that there's another station located 200 miles away who is CQing on the 
same frequency, until I figure out that some of the stations calling are out of
