Locked Re: EU Contest Mode
The EU contest mode worked very well with the new changes in 2.2.toggle quoted message Show quoted text
However, I did notice when calling CQ TEST xxxx on 6m - with the Es that was active a lot of non-contest stations never bothered - thankfully contest also on 2m so stuck to that band.
I wonder if there is a way for the contester(s) and non-contester can co-exist? The rules do cover working a non-contest station with something such as 'If the sending stations does not send a serial number then log a zero.’ If the contester sends serial no/locator the other station responds, if in contest, responds correctly all ok. If not in contest then fill in as much as possible - log ‘0’ and 4 digit - carry on. If the auto sequencer could cope then all happy. No need for buttons on main menu - no moaning when a contest on.
The pop-up reminder could exist to advise people why they are seeing different format.
As long as the contest station send/responds correctly for the contest I can’t see any issues with adjudications. This would/could also apply to the other contest mode (I guess).
I do appreciate the new changes with hashing this should solve lot of logging issues.
