Don’t forget, you can call CQ to every other APRS Field Day site in the
country using Pete’s CQSRVR (or Lynn’s ANSRVR).



Sitting there at your portable FD APRS station, reach out to the world.



STEP 1:   Just send an APRS message to CQSRVR and make the first two words
of the message be “CQ FD …” and your exchange.



Your message will go to every other APRS FD site that has also sent such a
message.



But like any band, calling CQ is usless unless someone answers.



STEP 2:  When you see similar CQ’s from other APRS stations, now you have
their callsign!

STEP 3: MAKE the QSO by now sending a specific MESSAGE to their CALLSIGN
acknowledging their exchange info.



STEP 4:  When you see an ACK, the QSO is complete.



These contacts do NOT COUNT for FD points.  But heck, it is fun, and what
else is APRS for but fun and showing off.
