locked Re: Puzzled Exchange #QSO_practices

Thanks for any enlightenment,
The other station has "Contest Mode" engaged. I don't know why
he is sending a "normal" CQ instead of CQ TEST (which should be
the case if NA VHF is selected).

I was puzzled by a couple recent 2m & 6m FT8 QSO's.
Responding to a normal CQ like CQ N8GLS EN91, I send the standard N8GLS K8ZM EN91, but in reply I got K8ZM N8GLS R EN91, the auto-reply in WSJT-X then sent N8GLS RR73 before I could catch it. The couple QSO's were the first I ever have seen an R followed by the Grid in the same line, WSJT-X is probably seeing the R and then jumps to RR73 (or maybe 73 if you catch it fast enough) but no report is getting exchanged, Is this some new QSO practice ??
