Hi Larry,

People are still debating about when to consider a QSO complete. As you mentioned, if you received a report, and sent a report back, the QSO is in theory complete. However, there is no confirmation that the other station received your report, hence the use of RRR. Others want everything, including the return 73.

The traditional JT65 QSOs are a bit like watching grass grow. But a couple of DXpeditions have run some JT65 lately. But I have had a number of cases where I called CQ and stations responded with a signal report. After responding with a signal report the QSO was considered complete. Some still want a "73" to complete the QSO. This scheme mimics the traditional CW/SSB "599/59, 599/59, TU" style exchange for DXpeditions/contests.

There have been a number of VK and JA stations on 80 JT65 I have worked from the East Coast earlier in the year. Many VK, JA, HL, and YB stations on 40. I did work VK on 160.
