Lots of interesting comments about zero beating. You guys are missing the
When you remove having to copy the station you're calling from the equation
by pumping his callsign through the internet so that it miraculously pops up
on your bandmap as a multiplier without your having to do anything at all,
the frequency on which you're going to be called is going to become a
function of how good the operator who spotted you was at zero-beating.
Short answer: when you jump on a spot, it's slovenly operating to not
zero-beat him before you call him. I know that wastes valuable nanoseconds,
but you can attempt to make up for it by using cut numbers.
