    I thought about down loading the q signals and start using them. Then I wonder if anyone would know them. Anyone still use them?

    qth, qsl, qrn, qrm.... Nets use qnb, qni, maybe some others. But I have not heard outside of that.

    Can't to print off a list and leave the radio. Read it a few times, maybe once a month to refresh the memory.

    Yes and they are in the ARRL log book.

    The ones I hear reasonably frequently: QRL, QRM, QRN, QRO, QRP, QRQ, QRS, QRT, QRU, QRZ, QSB, QSK, QSL, QSO, QSY, QTH, QST. The QN.. ones are used on nets, but basically only there. If you participate in those nets, you'll learn them quickly.

    I use QRU? as a nice way to indicate I'm about ready to end the QSO. I sometimes am asked what it means.
    On the average most every CW operator I run across knows and uses Q signals. VY 73 lane

    That's a good encapsulation of the normally used ones. Take note, MNG. And don't overlook the unofficial QLF.
