Seems to me when I was using and early release of version 10 I had to set
the alt-T value for 10 or so seconds to get a 4 second gap between CQs ,
which was  the length of the CQ message plus listening time.  But a few
releases down the road and alt-& set at 10  produced a 10 second gap
between CQs and I Had to change the alt-T value to the actual time I
wanted to listen between CQs.
