This section shows the various CQ lists that are available. You must be a registered user to view the lists. Within each CQ list there is a button to click on to join or remove yourself from each list. You can also put all of your CQ listings on hold temporarily by clicking the appropriate checkbox in your profile settings. To reactivate your listings, uncheck the box in your profile and save your settings.
It is also planned to automatically place CQ listings on hold for an inactive account after a certain amount of time of not logging in to the site (perhaps 3 or 6 months). The user will be sent a notification e-mail with a link to click on to keep their listings active without needing to log into the site. The notice will also include the address and phone information they provided on the site to make sure it is up-to-date. If a user does not click on the link within a week of receiving the notice their listings will be put on hold automatically. Another e-mail notice will be sent to them to inform them their listings have been placed on hold. For a user to reactivate their listings they would simply need to log in and remove the hold in their profile settings. This would help prevent old listings from remaining in the CQ lists and automatically remove listings for silent keys.

- This is a list of amateurs seeking QSO contact by radiogram.
