Hank, during ARRL 160 I was idly thinking about that... I ran a frequency 95% 
of the time with an occasional pass up the band, but Saturday evening I saw I 
needed 4 more sections so I used the 2nd receiver to go looking for them... 
Found 2 of the missing sections and did just what you did - marked them on the 
band map and then when I was ready I would jump off to them for a quick call, 
then back to CQ'ing enough to hold my frequency, until I worked them...  
  Afterwards as I kept CQ into an increasingly dead band I was musing how the 
cross checking software could tell that from sneaking onto packet...  If there 
is a consistent pattern throughout the test of jumping to a frequency for a 
multiplier then jumping way up the band for another, etc. the software can see 
the pattern... But I don't see anyway on my few multipliers I did that way, to 
tell my personal S&P efforts from using the DX Cluster...
  My puny efforts won't put me into their intensive cross checking pool, so I 
likely will never find out...
