I fully agree with you. There must be a two way exchange of the minimum elements required
for a legitimate contact. I too avoid folks that call me right off with only a signal report,
not having sent their grid. If I have to look it up in QRZ! I feel that the contact does
not satisfy the minimum requirements. That action is not radio,it's internet. The syntax of
exchanges are very explicit and widely published. Why people are lazy in order to save a few
seconds is beyond me. I suppose it is the way our society is going. They want what they want,
and want it now! Instant gratification...
Stay safe, and Merry Christmas..

I noticed that also from time to time and usually work the station (usually DX). I never gave it much thought but I do see your side of it.

I notice that when a lot of people call me in FT8 mode, they skip the first line with their callsign and grid square information and just call with their callsign and my report.
