Jim,  When you add to this the many stations that say "roger" (an 
improper CB import for "over" that just does not go away) the Q rate is 
even further diminished. Why can't the response be solely limited to 
what the contest requires?  Sometimes I get so annoyed with this that I 
answer back  "My name is Herb, not Roger."   The other one that is 
perhaps even worse is "good luck and see you after the contest."
