I am hearing a station - K1TCI - calling "CQ FS." What is the FS? I looked for a FISTS Sprint, but saw none. Thanks.

He's likely looking for a QSO with a station on St. Martin Island in the Caribbean (prefix FS).

Perhaps, but I have heard at least one other station calling it, as well. Thanks.

On second thought, Peter, you are very probably right. I heard the same fellow calling "cq fs" again today. In retrospect, I think it has been the same guy over and over.

Thanks for the perspective.

According to an e-mail that I got today (not in reference to this thread) FISTS is having a week-long straight key contest. There we go.
