2015-G2C: CW operating procedures and procedural signals; Q signals and common abbreviations: full break in
Which of the following describes full break-in telegraphy (QSK)?
Transmitting stations can receive between code characters and elements
Breaking stations send the Morse code prosign BK
Automatic keyers are used to send Morse code instead of hand keys
An operator must activate a manual send/receive switch before and after every transmission
What should you do if a CW station sends "QRS"?
Increase your power
Repeat everything twice
What does it mean when a CW operator sends "KN" at the end of a transmission?
Listening only for a specific station or stations
Listening for novice stations
Operating full break-in
Closing station now
What does the Q signal "QRL?" mean?
"Are you busy?", or "Is this frequency in use?"
"Will you keep the frequency clear?"
"Are you operating full break-in" or "Can you operate full break-in?"
"Are you listening only for a specific station?"
What is the best speed to use when answering a CQ in Morse code?
The speed at which the CQ was sent
The fastest speed at which you are comfortable copying
A slow speed until contact is established
At the standard calling speed of 5 wpm
What does the term "zero beat" mean in CW operation?
Matching your transmit frequency to the frequency of a received signal
Matching the speed of the transmitting station
Operating split to avoid interference on frequency
Sending without error
When sending CW, what does a "C" mean when added to the RST report?
Chirpy or unstable signal
Report was read from an S meter rather than estimated
100 percent copy
What prosign is sent to indicate the end of a formal message when using CW?
What does the Q signal "QSL" mean?
I acknowledge receipt
We have already confirmed by card
We have worked before
What does the Q signal "QRN" mean?
I am troubled by static
Send more slowly
Zero beat my signal
What does the Q signal "QRV" mean?
I am ready to receive messages
You are sending too fast
There is interference on the frequency
I am quitting for the day
