My slow old brain needs everyone to PSE QRS.
TU, and 73.
It is common practice to send QRZ ? after finishing a QSO if the operator has reason to believe others are waiting for a chance to call him/her.
Of course it is common to SAY QRZ (?) on phone , normal but, silly if you are "working" English speaking operators.
Actually using ANY Q-code on phone as a question is supper silly.
73 QSL ?
Since ham radio began with us just using Morse code, the “Q” signals were devised to make communication faster and more efficient.
When voice modulation became common, the “Q-code” had already become firmly embedded in the “language” of our hobby. So ever since, even on 'phone; instead of saying “Calling any amateur radio station whose operator might be listening, and would like to chat”--we say “CQ.”
Never understood why some folks completely miss the meaning of tradition in our hobby. It's to be kept alive and passed on not criticized.
