  Sure you can. What are you using for software ? I use UISS and what I do
is send call sign, some sort of signal report (it could be 59,599,grid or
combination of report and grid ) and then a 73​. I think as long as there
is protocol similar to JT65 where the three things are sent and received in
back and forth order,  other stations call,a report and 73, this way your
pretty sure there is someone on the other end and your not just getting
someones automatic announcement. Hope to see you on.
