Auto Seq Changes DX Call ? #logging


Bob KM4RL
 

Using FT8 and just changed band to 15 meters.
Initiated a normal QSO and received a free text [TNX 2BND 73] at the end.
Auto Seq responded with "2BND KM4RL 73".
The DX Call Window was changed to '2BND" from the free text message and was inserted into the log entries.

Thanks,
Bob KM4RL

It looks like the TNX 2BND 73 message has been coded into a standard <CALL> <CALL> 73 format. WSJT-X is not going to know that it’s not a real call.

 

I don’t know if there’s a way for WSJT-X to be told not to.  It’s only 11 characters so there could be a way for the sender add one or two characters – say “TNX 2BND 73SK”
