And there was a recent VHF contest and they probably forgot to remove the contest check mark. No issue.

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?
