I thought maybe the repeater was on at first, thinking it was a rogue call (it did sound just like AO-51 some days), but then I realized it was in there only ahead of other transmissions.  

BTW, I was just kidding.  Tto those of us in the southern half of N.A., hearing a blind call of "Hola" is pretty common.  If that really was a "secret" (I didn't know there was a secret word), I apologize for spilling the beans.

I was wondering if that was some local junk here.
