Yes, and you can only do that once every 30 minutes (though you remain logged on for I think it is 12 or 24 hours).  It is a CQ server only, after that, you have to communicate directly with the others that have called CQ.  It is only a way of "finding" like  minded stations in real time.  From then on it is normal APRS messaging...
