How do *you* close a QSO?

Discussion in 'Survey Center' started by W0AEW, Aug 15, 2017.


On CW, what excuse do *you* usually use to bring a QSO to a close?

  1. Gotta run. XYL's calling me for dinner/lunch/breakfast.

  2. XYL's home with the groceries and needs help.

  3. I better QRT & see what the XYL's up to.

  4. QRN/QRM/QSB ruff, I better sign off before I lose you.

  5. I hear my mommy calling, better run.

    To someone that I don't know:
    Ok thanks for the contact, have a great day, 73 from N6QIC.

    To a friend that I know:
    Ok talk to you later, have a great day N6QIC.

    To someone that I don't know that called me and I don't really want to talk to them, or I have to leave for some reason: Hey I have to go and take my dogs for there walk, have a great day, this is N6QIC

    Any of several ways, only some of which are included in the survey. Been a long time since I used it -- and hopefully will be a long time before I use it again: "I need my diaper changed." :rolleyes:

    I was amused to read the bylaws of a famous CW club, that one needed to have a half-hour QSO at or above the club's minimum speed in order to be considered for membership. I thought, "As a Novice it was easy to get the Ragchewer award because it took so long to send report/QTH/name/wx. At THAT speed, anybody I talk to for half an hour better be somebody I'm willing to marry.":D

    Unfortunately you have opened up too many avenues to continue the QSO! Next they'll be comparing BP or Cold-rectal results....:(

    Since you posted this here lots of QSOs are going to feel slighted the next time you use this! :)

    Right hand is on the key, left hand is dialing down the TX power control...

    The "I have to let you go" I think is a southern/Texas thing, like an old Texas grandmother on the phone with her friend "I have to let you go now, time to get my biscuits out of the oven". I know it drives some people crazy but it is just common vernacular around here.
