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".
