I quickly try to find a clear spot a couple of kHz up and call him, hoping
the mult will be moving upwards.  If I don't get a response after about a
minute, I go about 5 or 10 kHz below and move up to try to run across him
working someone else and then go through the same thing again, but this time
moving down a few kHz before calling him.

In no way should call the mult station on the other station's frequency.
