P.S. I tried responding direct, but your adr kept getting bounced.
Thanks for your comments. I don't work many JA's with 30W
and a LW, so your info is news to me. I do see it a lot from EU's.
I have my WD Timer set for 10 minutes since I sometimes walk
away doing other things and find it fun to come back and see that
I worked someone. Maybe some Stations set their timers for a very
long time for various reasons.
My intent was not trying to tell anyone how they should operate. I
was merely sharing a pet peeve of mine. Some folks look for reasons
to be "offended". I have two words for them - "f--- off!".

To answer Roger's initial question - I've only experienced this with stations "in demand". I call them with Tx1 but somehow get Tx3 back so I log a QSO without me ever sending my report. I guess they are treating data as an expedition type QSO and reports are superfluous? Never had it in answer to my CQ though.
There must be a different program out there that doesn't do this as I watched a Spanish station on 10m the other night that continually called a station on their frequency without any form of watchdog timeout and despite that station somehow managing lots of QSO's with other callers. Now that would peeve me off!
