When we talk to other Hams via a Digital mode we sometimes come across a word we do not understand. When this happens there are several places to find out what it means. You know we can never ask the ham we are talking to what it means, thats not the way we do things. But there is hope. Here a some web sites that can help you to be one of the "in" crowd. The first is the "List of Abbreviations found in ARRL Publications" http://www2.arrl.org/qst/aguide/Abbrev_AWE.pdf. This site has a lot of useful Ham Speak in it. Then we have the common "Q" signals https://www.arrl.org/files/bbs/general/q-sigs. This is a good place to learn some good Ham Speak QSL? We also use a many CW abbreviations and there is a great site with those from AC6V his site is located at http://www.ac6v.com/morseaids.htm#CW. Then we come to some of the more modern "text message" abbreviations, which can be found at http://www.acronymfinder.com/. As you can see as a modern Ham we have many ways to keep up with technology. And I guess if all else fails, just ask.
