    I had the same question. Did he literally send "leave the frequency" or what ?

    I think that maybe could have been the situation. Maybe he could copy a different radio service utilizing the freq. that you couldnt copy and he realized that after the QSO and he decided to warn you or something.
    You did the right thing. Easier to error on the side of caution and courtesy. Just relinquish the freq. No need to congest the band with questions or argue who was there first. For whatever reason the other operator wanted you to QSY or QRT, you did the absolute right thing by going SK on the freq. And then posting any question of it right here. No question is stupid question if you are unsure about operating procedure. KUDOS TO YOU. You are on the way to becoming a FB ham radio operator.

    The only thing I thought of is an established Emergency Net in operation, with all the hurricanes and earthquakes lately, but if there was no traffic, I am wondering if just some inconsiderate DX chasing was going on :eek: with a station too weak for you to hear, but then you would have heard other stateside stations calling. o_O
    Still wondering ! :confused:

    It's likely that you couldn't hear the other station and the ham who answered you after calling CQ didn't want to interrupt their QSO initially, which explains the initial silence.
    It would have been nice for them to at least explain what happened so you weren't left puzzled, though.

    Well, just how long are you supposed to wait for a station that you can't hear after you QRL?

    Who said anything about waiting for stations you can’t hear?

    I was asked to move on 30M a while ago. Even though I QRLd 4 times, watched my scope and listened. It seems a number of DX stations are asking hams to GO UP, usually claiming at least 10KHZ as theirs. These days we are expected to not only QRL but monitor several DX clusters before transmitting! That's way too much work for me! :)

    Wait at least 30 minutes while you check every DX cluster on the Interweb. :)

    That's just ridiculous. If there's a 10 kHz gap between the DX and the pileup, I see no reason why we can't make use of it. Narrow filters exist.
