locked Re: Wrong country displayed #FT8


It’ll take a while for GQ to be recognised for each of the countries. Like for GB most apps will decode England then look in the exceptions in their appropriate country list for other UK and CD countries.

Not decided whether it’ll be worth applying for GQ3ZZA yet.

The /70 suffix should not get decoded as a valid country as it’s not a valid prefix.

I am sure you are right, but from June 1st, some UK stations will be using the optional /70, with or without the regional indicator 'Q' to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee.

For example, G7SAI/70, GQ7SAI and GQ7SAI/70 are all valid during June.

Similarly MQ and 2Q prefixes.
