Judy: The statement "over & out" is an oxymoron. Over means "talk to me",
out means "I'm out of here"
Just thought I would pass along.

The "over & out" communicative term I believe originated in the
military where communication was conducted between parties patched to
a base unit. When one of the parties had concluded their
conversational input, that party said "over & out" as a means to tell
the other line participants, that party is leaving the conversation
and air or telephone time is being relinquished to the other (two or
more) remaining parties.

The term is also applicable for use between two parties and may used
to by one of the parties as a means to say that while one party is
ending the conversation, the other is free to continue to use the
channel to communicate with others. For example, two ham radio
operators may be having a conversation and one party is intends to
conclude the conversation. The party does this by saying it's call
letters and "over & out" thereby allowing the other party remaining on
the channel to be free to issue the ham radio call "CQ, CQ, CQ" or
"DXCQ, DXCQ, DXCQ" if the communication is intended to be
"international." Meaning the remaining radio operator is free to keep
the channel open; attempting to establish communication with someone
else. The term is still being used as a means to conclude
communication between parties and it sure beats saying "good-bye,"
which has little to no meaningful significance in radio or telegraphic
communicative terms. In telegraphic communication, where two (or
more) operators are in contact, one of the operators just types it's
call letters and the word "out" telling the other(s) their
communication has ended.

The Police have adopted the term "10-4" which carries the meaning of
"over & out" or "message received - out."

If something is simple.....make it complicated, tax it, and then create an
"association", so that you can test it for a license. That's the American
Way.
