    You said that the last time your question was answered.
    Yes, Qs = QSOs. IIRC, I first heard it used in context in the 1970s.

    Yeah, back when some started calling DX pileups as "piles". :(

    So you get the piles in a DX event and the runs in a contest but don't stand in Qs at the apothecary for medication for those.

    First time I saw a lot of those terms, most are NOT abbreviations.
    Q's was not among them. So your use of the word other is out of order.
