Yes, there is a difference between ANSRVR and CQSRVR and no, they are

CQSRVR is the original server and is designed for calling "CQ" and then 
listening for a while.  It has a limit on how frequently you can send a 
message to the group and requires that you must send a message to remain 
a member of the group to receive messages.

ANSRVR is the new server and is designed for sending announcements to an 
interested group.  There is (currently) no limit on how frequently you 
can send a message to the group (designed for multi-message information 
passing aka announcements) and there is a feature to allow quietly 
monitoring a group (renewing your group membership without sending a 

Bob seems to forget that ANSRVR exists and falls back to his original 
CQSRVR documentation, although besides the differences above, they both 
accept the same commands.  I monitor ANSRVR's FD year-round, but try to 
remember to join CQSRVR's FD group on field day only.

Oh, and they both should have ack'd your CQ FD.  Which one didn't?
