QSY is a shorthand message in the international Q-code which denotes a change of frequency. A long distance or simplex QSY might, for example, be transmitted to another operator to move up or down to another frequency because of interference or other problems such as poor reception and/or transmission.

If one is on a local repeater, an operator might suggest a move to another repeater for the reasons outlined above.
