Agreed.  Many times I had callers Send QTC?   and no QTC available for them.
In order to start the QTC, I need the callsign!


them: QTC?
me: Yes (I have some QTCs)
them: <callsign>
Me: NIL (not for you, specifically.)


them: QTC <callsign>?

Doesn't seem like much but it added up over the course of the contest!
