As you point out in #4, there is very little time wasted in sending
TEST (or NV as someone pointed out).

Maybe that's why I got several STATE? returns.  I was S&P'ing stations
calling CQ, TEST, etc, and would answer with K7ACZ 599 NV.  Think I
only got one QRZ? or CALL?.  Got several STATE?  Did they think NV
(Nevada) was TEST.
