Yep. I use that frequently. Sometimes I get a dit, sometimes not. If
not then I follow up with a full "QRL?". I figure it gives the guys who
know a chance to stop me without having to endure a full Q signal query.
Been doing that for years and I don't remember who taught me the
I was a ship Radio Officer for some years and used CW extensively. And,
I never heard the "didit dit" sequence while out there.
OTOH, whilst sailing the high seas, a long drawn out comma character,
"daaaah daaaaah didit daaaaah daaaaaaaah" was a serious insult, roughly
equivalent to "F*** YOU". I didn't see that on the list. Heh.. Those
were some fun times!
