*** CQ or CQDX must only be used ON A CLEAR FREQUENCY.***

There seem to be many operators who will reply to a call or try to call into an ongoing QSO on an already occupied frequency with ‘CQ CQ’ and then their call sign. This should NOT be done..

CQ and CQDX calls MUST only be used on a CLEAR frequency…

When replying to another stations CQ or CQDX call you do NOT say CQ or CQDX back, you should say your Call Sign only ONCE, that is all that is needed.

When You have transmitted your call sign, WAIT for the other station to call you in to make contact. There may be other stations also replying to their call so you must listen for them to call you (or another station they have heard) in to make contact..

All information other than your call sign can wait until you are called in for contact.

When you are called in for contact that is when you can give Signal report, Operators Name, location and any other information.. —

CQ or CQDX must only be used ON A CLEAR FREQUENCY.
