Hi Dale

That is a great way to do it.  Trying to be first is a waste of
time.  There are 10 other stations doing the same thing.  I like
to wait a couple of seconds, then send my call.  Lots of times
the station comes back to "HY?", then goes on with the exchange.
Best to be last than try to be first!  73
