Hello Gary and all,
I would trust one of the guys calling you (and once they find you) to notice 
the wrong qrg and re-spot you properly. I try to do that as often as I can. I 
think this would be better than self spotting which will always cause confusion 
and/or criticism not to mention that the 'police' would probably be happy to 
jump on the ...offender...?!
So I'll make sure to re-spot you or others whenever the situation presents
