What is the meaning of 'Roger That'. Who the heck is Roger.

"Roger" is an aviation code word that means "I received your entire message". It doesn't imply you agree or even that you understand what it means.

In popular culture, "Roger" carries the additional implication that the recipient agrees; "Roger that" just emphasizes the received message further, sort of like the response "you could say that again!"

To summarize:

In aviation:
A: "Come in B, the QNH is now 1002."
B: "Roger A. Unable, I don't know what QNH means."

In popular culture:
A: "Hey B, that girl is really gorgeous."
B: "Roger that, A!"

From Yahoo Answers...... Thankyou for solving this mystery for me.
