IT has NEVER been a need for 73 for a complete QSO

a qso goes like this. in Ms or EME or what ever mode

QSO Comkplete end discusion

73 are sent as a courtesy    But absolute not needed for a Complete QSO  
END OF Story.

So if i want to thanks some one on any media after above was done with 
73 and thanks for QSO  i dont see whats wrong with that.

Its much worse when stations send report on logger during QSO thats 
absolute not allowed.
