Locked Re: How is it that FT/x modes are being spotted as CW on spotting networks? #WSJTX_config

Joe Subich, W4TV

The cluster networks "assume" operating mode based on frequency.
They do not have sufficient "smarts" to differentiate between modes
when the SPOTTER does not include the MODE in the comments.

IOW, the cluster software is brain dead - particularly for "JT mode"
operations away from the "standard frequencies".

I have noticed that many reports submitted to the spotting networks have incorrectly categorized FT/x mode signals as CW. Is there any hope of preventing this frequent mistake and quieting down the inaccurate noise this creates in the cluster system? It makes FT users/spotters look kind of like LIDS when this keeps happening...
