What do you do with all those grids you collect?

OK, well, its up to you Roger....
And, do the other station know, that you did not log the QSO ?
Is for you the missing locator a reason for a faulty QSO ???

Normally there is no requirement to log any QSO in the UK so there
should be no expectation any QSO will be logged.

I usually ignore calls without a grid but the odd one creeps through.

I like to collect the grid of stations I work so a QSO without without a
grid is useless to me.

It's fairly standard to use this method to move things along. It's
mentioned in 10.5 of the user's guide:

In some circumstances it may be desirable to make your QSOs as short as
possible. To configure the program to start contacts with message #2,
disable message #1 by double-clicking its radio-button in the Next
or Tx 1 button in the Now column. Similarly, to send RR73 rather than
for message #4, double-click one of its buttons.

Unless they have a complex call which prevents sending their locator in
Tx 1 I do not log these QSOs as I regard them as incomplete.
