I would suspect that most people make QSO's via the birds to obtain 
awards, certificates, etc.  In a lot of cases, not all, grids are 
required.  That's why if you notice most QSL's printed up now have the 
grid square listed along with possibly CQ and ITU zones.  10 years back, 
I've never recalled a QSL with the grid square listed.
