Back with MIR, that usually meant that they had left the radio with 
an offset in it after making a scheduled voice communication.  If 
you were lucky enough to guess at the offset you could be the only 
one on the air.  Once with Mir a friend got a call from half way 
across the country saying that his packets were interferring with a 
repeater.   We figured out what had happened, and the next pass 
we had nice uncongested connects with the BBS.  That time they 
must have had the reverse button pushed too.
