Snake -
As luck would have it, I got a call from DirecTV this evening.  As a good and loyal customer they are going to give me $500 worth of equipment including a Genie and a Mini-Genie and something akin to the Apple box that will allow me to see about 78 skazillion movies.  All for free, except for an additional $3 per month and a 24 month guaranteed contract.

They will install tomorrow morning.  Will let you know how it goes.

Thanks guys for the replies!
I didn't notice that I had sent my question to Dale and the group as well!
Oh well I guess it was informative and related to radio, and the net
is mostly QRP!
Sorry about that.

Hi,

Once upon a time I worked some of the CW traffic nets. I had a table of
Q signals in front of me but over time, as I came in contact with those
signals I didn't have to look at the table any more. People checking
into this informal "ragchew" net won't have traffic but they won't to
send QRU. They ARE QRU if they list no traffic - QTC - which newer hams
also will not have to look up. Nobody should be listing traffic. Only a
small handfull of Q signals will be useful for the informal net.

Now that I'm retired I'm working to increase my CW proficiency and
rejoin those nets. By the way, I worked those nets and the Navy-Marine
Corps MARS nets QRP (2 watts) unless conditions demanded my full 90
watts.

73,

The problem may be, that the strong station may be an experienced op

it is a cause for frustration.
If you check in through a relay Jim what would you do.. if you don't
hear NCS.. .and don't recognize any of the calls other than
identifying the two you hear.. as being new ops?

Hi,

Learning the Q signals is pretty easy when you encounter them one at a
time. Apparently everybody now is familiar with "QNI".

I have a question.
Last week I could almost hear you, but qsb made it rough. Although I could hear several checkin ops. What is the proper way to ask for a relay? Is their a Q code? I wanted to relay in, but didn't know how to?

We have 6 or 8 more inches of wet snow today and big drifts. 
Heck if this wx keeps up I may get some projects finished !
