During the recent ARRL DX CW contest the experience of someone obviously using 
SO2R and trying to hold a frequency while going away for some other QSO reared 
it's head on 40M. 

Finding what seemed to be a clear frequency at 7003.5 after QRLing many times 
with no answer only to have a station come back after 2-3 minutes starting to 
call CQ. OK, so I can understand how this can happen even though we worked 2 or 
3 stations before the US station returned. Should I leave the frequency? Maybe. 
 Then he disappears for another 2-3 minutes. We work some more DX. Then he 
comes back calling CQ again. The time gone was just too long to expect a clear 
frequency when returning.

I really can't remember what we finally did. I think we moved but it was 
irritating for 15 minutes I am sure ruining both our rates. Next time we just 
will have to see who wins.
