      Yesterday, I was shocked to see UA1TAN calling CQ on 6 meters. However, looking at all.txt, I saw this:

      2014-Jun-23 17:37  18.102 MHz  JT65
      ...
      1908 -19  0.5 1661 # CQ UA1TAN KO58       
      1909 -13  0.2 1662 # UA1TAN ND3H EM60 
          
      1910 -19  0.2 1671 # W6NIF UA1TAN -12     
      2014-Jun-23 19:10  50.276 MHz  JT65
      1948 -21  5.6  486 # CQ UA1TAN KO58       
      1953  -8 -0.4 1615 # WA6JBZ W7OUU DN22    
      1955  -7  0.4 1616 # WA6JBZ W7OUU DN22
       


      You'll note that the 6 meter decode of UA1TAN came more than a half-hour after I'd changed bands from 17 meters, so it wasn't a matter of switching bands in the middle of a decode cycle.


      I've seen that false decodes often come with signals that are weak and several seconds late, but they're usually gibberish. This one was perfectly clean.
