Hi Steve
You may activate in General settings 'Start new period decodes at top'.
You may need stroll manually to pick your station, but it is the same with
the double click! You may have noted that the decodes are added in random
order.
There is a minor programming difficulty that is not yet resolved. After
some extended period new decodes are no more presented on screen, but they
are there and can be looked by manual scrolling. To prevent that you need
to erase Band Activity window periodically; Right-click and select Erase.
You may also activate CQ only to relief contention.

Hi!

If you make QSO, then it shall be logged and confirmed (QSL, LotW etc).

Making a QSO and then ignoring it is like "I do not like letter W. I
never confirm QSOs with stations with W in their callsign".

I like TX2: then I know  how I am heard and what to expect.

We've been into this stories in JT65 on HF times:  some people do not
like if called with TX2,

others do not like RR73, others expect one additional 73.

Funny: all this objections are gone when new country pops up.

Anyhow, some 20 % QSOs are never confirmed. That is life.

It's clear to the station calling CQ. That why the station is calling CQ on that offset. He may get multiple responses, but that does not negate the fact that it was a clear offset to him. As far as decoding all those responses, WSJT-X will attempt to decode first on his last offset that he decoded,and then will start on all the other offsets. The probability that all the signalsare of the same strength and are on exactly the same offset are rather small.Most of the time someone will get through and then the others within 25 Hz will be stopped. If after 2 Xmt cycles I see that the station still calling CQ,I will move 25Hz towards the center of the band and if that does not work,I stop calling that station.

It's not guaranteed that the other station's frequency is clear on his end. There could be dozens of stations calling him on that frequency. If he's DX then calling on his frequency could be a very bad choice.

Shouldn't matter whether the cursors match the desired station.

On that subject, a little expansion may be needed for newcomers and even as a reminder for some older ones who have forgotten.

I leave my rig on, monitoring 24/7/365. If I’m not using it myself, it is parked on an interesting band where I expect activity, especially overnight when the upper bands aren’t open. Overnight, I’m usually on 80 meters. During the day, I’m on 17 or as high as propagation will allow for a reasonable length of time.

When I get up in the morning, I look at the incoming list of stations to see how DX is doing. I am really surprised how many people aren’t paying attention to their clocks. It’s irritating to see so many that are a second or more off. Sometimes, I’ll try to let a station know about it with a free text, but when there are three or four of them that are way off, it just seems strange. The tools are right in front of each operator. Why aren’t they fixing it? Almost every morning I see KD1XXX (prefix could be wrong) sitting nearly 2 second off.

Some think that as long as they are within a second or two, they are okay. True - TO A POINT! Think about it a little more. If you are off +1.5 seconds, anyone who is off the other way more than 1 second (-1) will not decode you and you won’t decode them. That’s because the combined error is your signals is over 2.5 seconds total. You’re burning up the air, wasting some of your time.

Please strive to say well within 1 second. There are plenty of automatic ways to have your clock set properly to the right time. EVEN MANUALLY, your can get within 1 second very easily. Just look at the incoming signals. Not all of them are correctly time. BUT THE MAJORITY OF THEM ARE WELL WITHIN A HALF SECOND (.5).

73, and keep track of time (don’t waste it). 😉

That is a selfish position. Besides, the grid should be included in the LOTW confirmation, which is the modern equivalent of a paper QSL. When I came into the hobby as a school boy 66 years ago, a QSL was considered the final courtesy of a QSO, and each party paid for the stamp on their own card.

A QSO is defined as the exchange of, and the confirmation of, the transmission and reception by both parties of the callsign and one other piece of information. For nearly a century, a signal report has been used as the second piece of information. The use of a Maidenhead grid is a newcomer, introduced, I think, by VHF/UHF awards and contesting in the last half century.

Hi Steve,

There is another way to achieve the same kind of issue especially on tail ending. Copy and paste the wanted call sign into box below DC Call and hit Generate Std Msg. Note that this does not take care of the proper timeslot, while double-click does.

On the other hand a slow double-click does not harm too much. You can delay the start of your transmission by say up to 3 seconds into the transmission slot and still lose only a little, unless your signal is very weak. Forward error correction takes care of the missing part of your transmission.

This works well if one can quickly double-click before the next 15 second

would like to be able to double-click on the call but not have "TX enable
be set" thus avoiding transmission sometime during the 15 second period.
Thus, an option to hold a modifying key, such as CTRL or SHIFT, while
double clicking would be very useful. Thus, double-clicking on the call
with the modifying key held down would populate the call in the "standard
message area," but not enable TX. Now I would be able to wait before the
next transmission period to set TX enable.

Is this a useful option to others? Is there another way to do this without
having the source code modified?
