    The Missing Q signals

    Some Q signals have never made it to the ARRL's official list. Here are
    some that may agree would be useful in appropriate situations. As with
    regular Q signals, each can be a statement or a question, depending on
    whether a question mark follows it.

    Obviously, many of these are for eyeball QSO's, and not for use on
    the air (hi hi).

    QAS? - Are you speaking out of your @$$?
