    What's SSB ? I hear about USB connections if you have a computer Robot running your radio ?
    I use Q-signals all the time, to save time on CW.

    A while back on SSB I heard a station say "QSL?" at the end of every broadcast. That was jargon-y. Just say "over" or "go ahead". I suspect this ham was once an avid CBer and just carried the CB love of jargon to sideband. Sadly, I bet not a few new amateurs copied his liddish style.

    I don't use 'em personally.... but I don't care if someone else does.

    I am operating a low power station at 3 watts. I was having trouble copying your last transmission due to loud bursts of noise caused by a nearby thunder storm, as well as interference from a station not very far off our frequency. I would say your signal strength was fair and readable with considerable difficulty. I would like to exchange a post card that contains our contact information to verify that I actually had a 2 way amateur radio communication with you. Can you provide such a card? Best regards.

    OR THIS:
    I'm QRP at 5 watts. There was considerable QRN and QRM on your last transmission. Your report is 3 by 4. I'd like to swap QSLs if that's alright with you. 73

    I prefer the latter.
