Even though I'm not a "sprinter", just about nothing frustrates me more,
that to have to wait, for my exchange/acknowledgement, while a SO2R operator
makes, or completes, another contact on the "other" radio! In most
circumstances, if I'm made to wait, for more than what would normally be
enough time, to complete the contact "with me", I'm moving. IMHO...until
your "competent" enough to not make anyone wait for an
exchange/acknowledgement, better to stick with SO1R? How you become
"competent" is your problem, just don't "practice" on me!
