I work 40 CW whenever I get a chance. Lately, I am being asked the
following in the middle of
(a) are U gud inet? meaning Is your address listed on one of
the internet web sites?
(b) are U gud on qrz? meaning are you listed with
When you hear "QSL bigbands at black-arts.org" obviously meaning one of
those instant URL QSL's. which you can spool off and save or print
out. It don't seem like Kansas anymore Toto!
I propose a field fix for (a) and (b): define a new q signal (I propose,
with neither consultation or
coordination) the q signal QNQ? to mean "are you good on the Internet."
So, "pse QSL my QNQ " means please qsl via my published Internet
address. And "QSL QNQ yada at yada.org" might mean to use the
following Internet address much like QTH is used. "QSL QNQ qrz" while a
confusing (most things are you know) will mean qsl via my qrz address.
Knowing the ways
of CW ops the previous will probably get shorted to just "QSL via qrz"
When it came time to send my email address I sent it as follows:
hlf @ cox.net =>
ditditditdit ditdaditdit ditditdadit didadaditdadit daditdadit
dadada daditditda didadidadida etc.
not "at" but the morse "@" that I remember as "WR."
