Waiting a second before initiating outbound calls


I have a TDM410, it works fine except for a glitch with the automatic outbound calls. If I create a call file, asterisk picks it up and dials. I understand that with the analog card I don’t have any call control at that point and I can live with that. BUT, I think that sometimes asterisk starts dialing before the dial tone. Sometimes there is static hiccup before the dial tone which I think is the problem, other times the call goes through fine. If I pick up another phone one the same line and get the dial tone and and then initiate the asterisk call, it works fine.

My question is, is there a setting to have asterisk wait a bit before initiating the outbound call when using a call file?
