    It's when they just throw out their call and "test" that gets confusing. you don't know if they are calling CQ or IDing while tuning up, etc...

    Funny thing, I've never thought about it, but to a VK, it doesn't sound so strange, as in sports, we have cricket contests, which are called "Tests"
    Same with Rugby, if it comes to that!

    CQ TEST can also be ops looking for reverse beacon spots of their call sign. Often they will call TEST CQ TEST DE .MYCALL.
