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!
