There are some Hams who use the letters "SE" when they send in CW.  Usually in the  main body of the QSO usually after a BT break.  What is this

It's not common.

"Hi hi" is obviously didididit didit and not dididit dit.  So, it's probably not that.

You sure it's not didit didit (like two letter "I"s close together)?  That's a very common thing to just kill time, like "I'm thinking," or an abbreviation for an error (8 dits in a row), like "Oops, I made a mistake."

I've been known to send 'di-dit...di-dit', [I-I] whilst thinking. Often the other guy will then send to me through my QSK...

I don't use HI HI for laughter on CW.

I use HEE HEE.

All you have to do is space the two dots out, and it's much more realistic laughter.

Could it be DE instead of SE?  Is a call sign the next thing you hear?
