    在我们中国,业余无线电通联时“88”的含义是:对对异性操作员的礼貌的致意,和美好的祝福。并不理解为亲吻或拥抱。DE BI8FXG

    [Google Translation:

    In China, the meaning of "88" during amateur radio communication is: polite tribute to the operator of the opposite sex, and good blessings. Not understood as a kiss or hug

    This forum is intended only for YL commentary, but it's nice to read a perspective from another culture and how the term 88 is interpreted there.

    So your comment will be a welcome exception to the "YL Comments only" nature of the forum. Thank you!
