The feature of the MODE "QRT" setting will prevent keying the transmitter, but it requires prior action on the part of the operator.
If, as CQ100 transceiver is opened on the screen, it always defaults to "QRT" it might prevent an embarsment to a station.
Also, for years in the Land Mobile market, they have had Carrier Control Timers. A similar carrier timer of 10 minutes (or adjustable by the operator) might be a sensable feature to limit inadvertant channel lockout. (The beacon stations might require a way to defeat a CCT).
