Have you ever operated on CW QSOing a rare station, a contest or a DXpedition. The exchange is
DX station: QRZ
DX: K1NS 5NN
ME: R 5NN
DX: TU QRZ
Note that I never send his call sign, he usually sometimes sends his call every several QRZs, and usually a TU instead of a 73.
I think the wsjt modes are just following contemporary standards. Quick and minimal.

Subject: [WSJTX] re: #FT8 CQing Refuses to Send 73 After Receiving 73
The main thing I was trying to say is, it seems as if this is a new behavior; I don't remember ever not having me (my software) not sending a 73 after receiving a 73.
And the RR73 deal; unless signals are very strong, I don't like to use it, as there are many times that I've sent that and the other guy is still sending AD4TJ xxxxxx RRR; he has not received my RR73.
On another note, I rarely use FT4; it's aggravating to think the QSO is over but the other guy is still sending RRR; so in the overall scheme of things, I'm not really saving time, as messages have to be repeated to complete. Even signals as strong as single digits below 0 have to be repeated to complete.

what is the purpose of the extra 73 message you wish top send?
