How about "an inadvertent QSO'??

Kind of like when RS-12 was in Mode K (15m up, 10m down).  It was common 
to hear a CQ where it was obvious that the station calling CQ didn't 
know his 15m transmit signal was being repeated by RS-12.  I would 
answer the CQ and inform the other guy that I'm hearing him on the 10m 
downlink of a satellite.  The other station, of course, was listening to 
my 15m signal, not the satellite's 10m downlink.

I don't know what you would call this, but it's not a valid 2-way 
satellite contact or a valid 2-way HF contact.
