locked Kicking out of Enable TX
Williams, G (af8c)
Recently I experienced a problem in FT8 operation (V2.2.2)
where I was trying to work TI5GAX. After I clicked Enable TX,
after two 15 second cycles the Enable TX was turned off without
my input. This happened twice and then after that I was able to
continue normally. This problem occurred today with a different
attempted QSO but I now don't remember the other operator's call
So today I decided to look into ALL.TXT to
see if there were any clues for the problem. I did not find
any crumbs in the file to indicate what the problem was.
Nothing was found even with a hexadecimal view. Is there a known reason?
2. Below is a section of ALL.TXT, probably
not for when (1) occurred. I have edited all \x20 space
characters to comma for clarity.
There are two styles of text strings.
First is for most text lines. Second is where my transmit
occurred. Notice the long fill of commas at the end of the
strings. Is this also by design or perhaps an oversight? I
don't believe this feature is related to the cause of the
problem in (1). (To save space I have removed some
unrelated text lines.)
