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


1 Answer 1


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. $\endgroup$
