I think all you need to do is exchange ANY type of information (other than
your callsign, of course - which IS mandatory).
So, grid, first name, occupation, what you had for dinner, etc. I believe
most people use grids because then you are also elligible for all the
awards that go with grid collection.
I also believe that using a recording (that you actually made yourself on
the pass) is totally legit. Using a recording from a satnogs station 500
miles away - not so much. I'm not a grid-chaser, per se - so I'm sure
somebody else will give you the official position on both questions.
