It is funny you should mention this - I was just thinking about a
similar contact I had in SSB SS this year.

While the station in MN was giving me my exchange I could hear someone
else in the background giving an exchange to another station at the
same time.

Although I thought my recording was not working I just brought up
the audio file and it turns out I have it recorded.

I did tell them during the contact that they should not 
have two signals on the air.
