[aprssig] Earthquake data not quite right

I was watching some of the 
earthquake data coming in via the firenet feed yesterday.  However, some of 
the "earthquakes" that are marked on the map do not exist in the USGS 
list of earthquakes at all.  Not even close.

For example, at this moment there is an earthquake with the name 092339q12 
which would be September 9 2339 UTC and a magnitude of 1.2.  No such 
earthquake exists in the feed from USGS.  I've already searched and my 
earthquake "ticker" never showed one either.  So where did it come from?

Same thing for 091517q15.  No matching earthquake in the database.

However, a set of them marked 081703q16, 082059q15, 082344q18 and 090255q20 **DO** show up in the quake list and on my ticker.

So what is inserting the bogus quakes into the feed?
