I haven't been on the air in a couple of years. I checked out 20 meters and heard several stations calling cq p. Can someone tell me what this is? Portable stations? Thanks

I heard the same thing on 40 CW last night.  It may be a contest.  The stations I heard using CQP were all W6's.  Coincidence?  Or maybe the California QSO party/  Not sure.

Perhaps you heard:

cq cqp

If so, that is indeed the California QSO Party that is on this weekend.
