Contest season is starting off again and as usual at least 50% of those participating have no idea how call CQ. I'm tuning across 20m CW and there are at least 20 stations outside CA calling CQP. Here is a very simple rule, very simple.
RULE: If your outside CA you call CQCA. If your inside CA call CQP. The same principle applies to PAQP. If your outside PA call CQPA, if your inside PA call PAQP. Another example if your outside FL call CQFL , if your inside FL call FQP, etc etc etc.
This is not a hard concept to understand yet year after year only 50% get it right.
Thank you :-)
