Nope. The FCC wants you to send YOUR call at the end of a QSO. I don't
know of any FCC requirement to ever send the other guys' call.
Sometimes I communicate (when responding to ? for example) with people who
never send their call.
I believe the intent of this rule is so that an FCC monitor can determine
who is sending by listening for at most 10 minutes. They aren't
particularly concerned about who I am sending to.
