The Q code is a standardized collection of three-letter message encoding, all starting with the letter "Q", initially developed for commercial radiotelegraph communication, and later adopted by other radio services, especially amateur radio. In today’s audio signal transmission age, the Q codes are not essential. but still in use and are viewed as a sort of tradition.

The common practice was that the ones who made contact at a particular frequency exchange a QSL card in the mail to confirm their contact and conversations.
