Hi Dale

I think that is a good way to do it.  I acutally put "W7WHY <<<<<nst>>>>>" 
at the end.  At least if someone tunes me in at the end of the CQ, they know 
I am CQ'ing.

If I just send W7WHY, it's hard to tell if I am calling someone else, 
finishing an exchange, or calling CQ.  It has become the norm on RTTY to put 
"CQ" on the end of a CQ.  73

> While I still "CQ" in contests, I do mix it up with "kg5u kg5u test"
