locked Re: Being called when just monitoring and not transmitting

I would bet most are decode errors... Look the call up on QRZ, see if it is real...

Yesterday I had a phantom caller from the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
Is it just something we have to accept with the a priori decode feature or is it a bug in the software.
It can't be an incorrect decode of a real caller either as there was no one using that particular frequency 516 and ten minutes had elapsed since my last transmission.
