Call sign gibberish?

I just installed WSPR on a new shack computer. I'm on 30m and decoding signals which appear to have call signs which might be suspect. Or data is corrupted. For example, the map shows I received UR9DXO but the map puts him in Ethiopia, based on the signal's grid, I assume. It also shows me receiving CO9QDG but places that station in the Pacific. My transmit seems to work fine. I also received some signals which appear to have calls not found in the amateur radio service based on their formats. I've been on WSPR in the past but with no such similar problems. What gives?
