[CQ-Contest] CQ WW Survey results - part 1

I believe Herb was referring to the following usage of "Roger":

"CQ Kilo One X-ray Yankee Zulu,  Contest"

"Warshington America Five Xylophone Playing Monkeys"

"WA5XPM 59 456"

"Roger,  Roger.  Please copy 59 number 2, number 2. Roger?"

"Thank you. K1XYZ."

That last "roger" probably ought to be an "over"... but really,  I think it's best to focus on being happy to put the Q in the log.

One wonders if those of us who avoid mics, or who are asocial in late June all made a point of being active on phone during Field Day,  providing an abundance of examples of crisp exchanges... perhaps contagion would reduce the number of "please copy" utterances in other tests?

(I hope this thread dies down before RTTY Roundup. I currently have an urge to add "PSE CPY" to a macro or two,  to appease my sense of humour.)

I would like to call Herb's attention to the General Rules for All
ARRL Contests:

"3.2.All callsigns and exchange information must be sent, received,
ACKNOWLEDGED and logged correctly by each station for a complete QSO."

"Roger", "QSL", or some other form of acknowledgement is REQUIRED.
