I'm afraid that doesn't explain it, Jorge. As I understand it, a
station must QSY ~500 Hz before he is recognized as a "new CQer", and
then only if his transmission contains the keywords CQ or TEST and his
own callsign at least once. The procedure used to answer callers should
make no difference.
It is more likely, I think, that the other stations were making sure to
incorporate the keywords in their transmissions often enough so that
they were sure of being re-spotted soon after their "every 10 minutes"
interval had expired.
