    .. . was the old land line "C"....and used forever. I still use it to find a clear frequency.....as does anyone who uses full break in.

    DitDit Dit may have been an AMERICAN telegraph query . . .

    But I've never been aware of its use over here in Britain . . . or Internationally.

    I got my A Class licence back in 1969 . . . and was an SWL for a couple of years before that. I never heard anyone using anything but QRL? to check if the frequency was busy.

    So I suspect the ARRL eventually changed their suggested procedure once they realised there were more Amateurs around the world than just in the USA !
