Yes this might be the reason. In 1993 I heard VOA via Udorn Thani on 7216
kHz and sent my report with this frequency. Because the official schedule
stated 7215 Khz they also wrote on the QSL card "Via: Cannot Verify". This
is of course in contradiction with the text the QSL starts "We are please
to confirm your reception report..."
