locked Kicking out of Enable TX


Williams, G (af8c)
 

Hi Bill,

1.

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 sign.

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.)
