Locked Re: What's with the "R" ? #TechnicalHelpQuestion


Many of the Field Day QSOs that should have been completed were using the shortened method. If WSJT-X didn't progress through to the point the log applet displayed, I kept going three times or so and went on. Those stations were not logged.

And there was a recent VHF contest and they probably forgot to remove

Hi Ty,
Others have mentioned that it is a VHF contest mode to gather grids only.
I understand that now, but this was on the HF bands and not in a contest.
So, I guess that I will just log it anyway...

That’s a normal contest mode response. It’s a short-cut to expedite the QSOs.

Perhaps the other station used R as to show remote?

This has happened to me a couple of times now where I am calling a
station and the responder has that additional "R" between their call and grid.
It causes the program to think the QSO is done and displays the Log
QSO screen before any information can be exchanged.
Is this something new and intentional?
