You all may be amused to note that on our local repeater, we often give a
double kurchunk at the end of a QSO to signal that we heard the "final"
transmission, and were still listening... as opposed to shutting the
radio off in the middle of it ;-)
I still do a "dit dit" and more often than not, the "dit dididit dit" at
the end of a CW contact too.
Speaking of old habits... I also still ID as "mobile eight," while driving
around town... drives the new guys nuts.
