I was just on 40CW and had a few nice ragchews but was saddened to still hear ops (evidently newbies, or possibly even OTs just getting back) who actually don't even know how to call CQ. AD9Y, that's you. Of course, many others. But AD9Y had a very good signal here and called CQ by sending CQ then his callsign about six times, and that was that. No "K," no way to tell when he was finished and listening. I heard four stations calling him (besides myself, since I did, also) and he called CQ again -- same way, with no "K." C'mon. Do some listening. Since I've been pretty active on CW lately and prefer ragchews to quick "59 73" contacts, I also hear a lot of words that are needless. Why send, "PLS REPEAT YOUR NAME AND QTH" when "QSM AA RST" says the same thing and uses a whole lot fewer characters, taking far less time? Learn some Q signals. There's no cash prize for solid copy, and this is a hobby. 99.9+% of all ham comms are not emergency traffic and it doesn't have to be exact or accurate; but why waste time? QSB is bad enough. Do some listening.
