Default Re: Bonus to hearing rolls - specifically taking several seconds to listen

For what it's worth, in GURPS Low-Tech (p. 49) it's specified that you can take half the usual Extra Time bonus to get a signal through by repeating it: +1 for four or more repetitions, and +2 for fifteen or more. That seems as if it would work the same way for taking extra time to listen, if the sound you're trying to hear continues for that many seconds, or is repeated that many times.
