      I am assuming you are using terrestrial JT65A as the mode, rather than EME, so I’ll reference that.  The old-timers to that mode taught me that you exchanged call signs, locator and signal reports for a valid QSO.  And the 73 was optional.  That said, I don’t know who their tutor was or who originated that rule.  Personally, I totally agree with your point about not confirming without a signal report.  I have been in the same situation, and unless I get a call sign, grid and report, I don’t QSL.  That is just my opinion.

      I think what is being said is, there is no minimum acceptable standards for a valid QSO. How can one agree between each other what is valid in JT65 mode at the time of the QSO? There must be a minimum standard for ARRL awards taken from QSL cards. I have had one operator that never sent an RRR or a 73 and threw a fit when I would not validate the contact. Do each of us make up our own standards.
