      The Article is a good idea. I would be willing to help and co author with someone else.  The earlier papers I wrote on V4 for DCC were pretty technical...what is probably needed now is a more “hands on” how do I set it up and use it type of article.

      Another promotional Idea I had was some type of contest.  In a near future release I plan to  include a simple  mechanism for automatically  exchanging grid squares on a V4 ARQ QSO.  We could use that  and V4Chat’s standard ADIF log to make it easy to  submit and “score” a V4 contest.   It would emphasize the accuracy of the V4 ARQ and the efficiency of exchanging and logging basic QSO data.  Those that are more familiar with contesting could help set this up.

      Not a problem. The ICOM fix is a "nice to have"

      V4 Chat is fully functional as is.

      Now we need some promotional work. Anyone willing to write an article for QST or CQ?

      it...e.g. I don’t have access to a 735 myself so fixes to that end up being totally trial and error often requiring many iterations of me making a change, trying to capture more info on the effect of the change, and having some one else run the test.

      have the 735 bug and the readback from Yaesu radios on my list as well as a few others but I needed to get this release out since it affected almost every user since it had to do with some marginal timing situations. The net result is more reliable operation for most users.
