I saw someone on 20m FT8 this morning calling "CQ NM". What does NM mean in this context? The followed the NM with their call and grid as usual.


Now that I've seen a few other 2 letter abbreviations, I've figured out it means they're looking for a contact in New Mexico.

    $\begingroup$ +1. I think you are exactly right. Most likely it is someone who needs NM for a WAS (Worked All States) award. $\endgroup$
