QSO is over when each side acknowledges receipt.

This can be RR73, RRR or 73.

Not before.

During today's practice session I noticed that some never completed the QSO with an acknowledgement like (R or 73) for FT4 in contest mode. As a result the WSJT-X sequencer kept sending the grid, looking for a response, and no logging was initiated. This seemed like the other station was trying to save a cycle. Should such QSOs be logged, or are they incomplete? Thanks.
