Hi Mattia,

thanks for reporting the issue. It is a known issue with WSJT-X v2.2.2 which writes an invalid ADIF header when it first creates its own ADIF log file. You can fix the header by editing the ADIF log file using Notepad.exe. The log file is in the WSJT-X log files directory ("Menu->File->Open log directory") and is called wsjtx_log.adi (alternatively accessed as "%LocalAppData%\WSJT-X\wsjtx_log.adi"). The header line contains <eh> which should be changed to <eoh>
