      Sorry Phil,

      I really don't understand your two single word email responses, "No" &
      "Boycott". I assume, you have no interest in HamSpots presenting valid
      data to the users.

      To save you the trouble of having to keep WSJT-X and your VFO in sync or
      un-checking auto-spotting, I will drop all your spots, both sent and

      de Laurie VK3AMA
