Q: What did CQD mean? |
SD: CQD we believe has its origins in ham operator lingo. CQ meant seek
you or seeking you, I'm seeking you, are you out there? Is anybody out there?
And the D was added to stand for danger. So that it was meant to mean, I am
seeking you, danger. And that's where CQD emerged from as the first distress
signal that was used.
