Several readers responded to my posting last week on the phrase "Over and Out." Brian Long suggested that "Over and Out" could be appropriate, after all. For instance, Brian suggests, when the conversation is ready to end: "Both parties should sign off, so the first party provides '(callsign) over and out' to indicate his/her signing off and waiting for the second party to sign off. The second party then only needs '(callsign) out.'" "Over and out" from the first party means "over: to you for a response," and "out" means, "and after I hear it, I'll be gone."
