I heed the advice of a local old-timer, and after listening to a frequency for
a few seconds I send "N4ZR test" as my QRL-equivalent. If I don't hear a "QRL"
or a "CQ" or someone completing a QSO on the frequency, a full CQ is next. I
don't expect any more slack than that when I'm operating SO2R, and don't think
others should either.
