[CQ-Contest] Sending 'test'

It allows to discern whether the callsign just heard as tailend belongs 
to the CQ-ing station = to be called after "test"
or belongs to someone calling the CQing station = not to be called (when 
no "test" heard)

Of course only relevant to those operating unassisted and therefore not 
knowing the callsign of the frequency owner.

Omitting "test" is time saving at the expense of unassisted operators.

P.S.: Now  awaiting LY5W's fierce attack on his pet peeve ;-)
