Don't see the point, Stewart.  There's no guarantee that a frequency which 
is a fixed step away will be clear and available.  Even if it is and you 
make a quick QSO, the first frequency will probably still be occupied, 
either by the station who worked you there or, if not by him, by the person 
who then worked him and properly inherited the channel!
