12823W1AW/9 on 6m
- Jun 27, 2014Last night a station WA1W/9 was on 50.276 operating. Whoever it was was
not giving signal reports. No matter what message I sent I could not get
a signal report from them. I tried using RPT PSE? My RPT PSE also
sending their signal report over and over. Also changing the signal
report from R-06 to -06 or whatever their signal report actually was.
Then one they started sending short messages RRR and 73 as replies. I am
using WSJT-X. It would not decode the short messages. They were using a
different program to work the JT65 mode then I was obviously. That was
not such a big deal that we were using different programs. They were
also sending replies late in the cycle that wouldn't decode.
Their computer clock was on well enough to decode ,off at most 1.5
seconds on one decode. Also WA1W/9 was calling cq with this message.
1422 -1 1.5 1299 # CQ W1AW/9. Their reply was always call this is call
no matter who they were replying to. Here is a sample of my attempts to
get a signal report from them.

I gave up and sent 73
I wasn't the only one who couldn't get a signal report from them.
