I used to be a RM2D TEST guy, and did so because it was the habit of the
Simply becuse it has reduced the amount of stations, who by mistake start
calling while the word TEST is still being transmitted.
It is SOO logical to end the CQ TEST message with the call - and not with
another disturbing word TEST.
In order for RBN to efficiently pick up the call RM2D, them simply use:
TEST RM2D RM2D or alternatively mix it with the shorter TEST RM2D.
If you like some people to start calling you before your CQ has not ended,
be sure to add the TEST at the end...
