Sure, the running guy made an error, and surely 
typos occur... but it's also possible he heard you 
calling someone up the band a few hundred Hz and 
your transmissions were "in sync" so he thought 
you were calling him.

The fact that so many S&P guys call WAY off 
frequency can cause running guys to get a little 
loose about how far off frequency a caller they'll 
respond to.  Sooner or later they get fooled and 
work a "phantom".
