One way to avoid that happening is to put out a "QRL ? QRL ? " call or simple inquiring if frequency is in use . QRL means same thing in a Q Signal form. There was a day all ham were familiar with the Q code.
Rarely hear "QRL" or anything like it. Operators just jump on a frequency and start calling ... LIDs.

CQ Field Day... CQ Field Day...
Actually, I've been guilty lately of CQing on top of someone, but it was not intentional. The bands have been so goofy and the QSB so long and deep I've totally missed ongoing QSOs, even after watching for a minute or more.
Last night, I was seeing strong signals CQing but could not get any answers. I was operating Recliner-Remote from my living room so I couldn't hear the signals, but it made me wonder if the aurora was back last night.
