If your working a pileup, in marginal conditions, ending the QSO with 
'thanks QRZed V3CH' will often result in the the pileup not knowing
your call. If they don't hear you Q5 or are a bit anxious to work you
they will start calling as soon as they hear QRZed. If using QRZed I
try to always say it last 'thanks V3CH QRZed'. This happens much more
often when your DX working lots of big pileups, of course. Its kind of
like the effect I sometimes get when CQing with a DVP 'CQ CONTEST 
K0GU K0GU'.I unkey and hear the last part of the call of a station
calling me because he has responded after the first K0GU.
