Baloney, Bill?

I think not.

My main concern for waiting too long between CQ's would be too many
potential contacts tuning past my frequency without hearing me.

We're on the air only a handful of weekends per year from here to try to
be as competitive as we possibly can.
And if other amateurs despise contests for this type of operating
practice, it's likely a due to a lack of understanding of what's going
on...... and that's THEIR problem.
