Point of order -- what is a "qrz message," and why would we want to 
automate it?

"QRZ" at the end of a contest or pileup qso is a big time waster, 
because it doesn't tell prospective callers WHO you are. The RIGHT way 
to end a CW QSO is "TU W6IHG"  On SSB, "thanks W6IHG," and on RTTY, TU 
W6IHG CQ. In all cases, S&P callers know who you are, and you're 
advertising your presence rather than concealing it. When you use "qrz," 
the good ops tune right past you.
