Really, it sounded like you were transmitting on two bands simultaneously
to me.  My friend was over at the time & he thinks the same, too - we switched
one radio between two frequencies & each time we changed, there you were
CQing, so you must have had two transmitters going at the same time!  ;^)

Dualing-CQ is a great way to really milk two bands when rates on either one
are a bit low, but it's easy to get comments like this:

NK6T-@ 21033.0 JE1CKA poor op. big mouth 0530 21 Jun 2003

Or to have an S&Ping VR2 station give you a miss as he is unlikely to stay
on frequency when his reply to your CQ (not the dummy CQ) is ignored.... ;^)

I think the two are mutually exclusive (the name "dualing-CQ" sorta suggests
no S&Ping to begin with).

Either you do ^- & run the two bands, or you simply CQ on one & S&P the other
using Alt-D.
