    Unhappy Un-understood expression

    i'm french and currently learning english but some idioms or expressions sounds totally out of reach, due to my poor vocabulary...
    I would like to know what "over and out" stand for...

    Could you please help me with that case?
    Please?

    Re: Un-understood expression

    It is used when communicating on radios - over means "I've finished speaking for the moment and await your reply". Out is used to terminate a conversation.

    Properly the two should not be used together.
