FCC Technician Exam Question Of The Day (T2B10)

Q) What is the "Q" signal used to indicate that you are receiving interference from other stations?


NJ2X Notes:
Q-signals are codes abbreviating a detailed question or answer.  The codes, as agreed upon by the International Telecommunication Union, are used worldwide on radiotelegraph.

Q-signal abbreviations are given the form of a question when followed by a question mark.  When an abbreviation is used as a question and is followed by additional or complementary information, the question mark should follow this information.

QRZ? QRZ? - means, "who is calling?"
