That sounds like a put-down / diss.

The OP asked a reasonable question and should not be denegrated for asking it.

I, too, had wondered about that --- whether the inclusion of "POTA" meant ( Don't bother me if you aren't also a POTA station ).  It is a reasonable assumption based on other amendment protocols (such as "DX")

Might be better if the protocol specified something like:  " CQ W1AW POTA"  instead of  " CQ POTA W1AW " ---- the former being far LESS confusing to Noobs.

No, it means they are at a park doing a POTA activation. They need
ten contacts for a successful activation so I also try to respond.

Does 'CQ POTA' mean "I only want stations at a park to reply"?

73, Chuck


Do they need 10 other POTA stations or any 10 stations?
