      No not really Russ. Quite often and especially during a contest or Es opening with JT6M I will work more than one station at a time. Under those conditions how do the stations know who I'm directing the traffic to. W6OUU and WA5UFH are both working me and I receive my report okay from W6OUU but still don't have it from WA5UFH so by your definition I would send DX RRR DX R-26. That tells W6OUU that I got his report and tells Tip I still need his. How do they know what is for them? Does W6OUU think I missed his report so he sends it again or do they both think I got it so the DX RRR is for them? Whereas if I send OUU RRR UFH R-26 there is no question who I'm directing things to.
      I'll go and look at the SOP on the WSJT site but in all honesty I've never seen it done the way you are proposing.

      Barry, the thing is that you have already exchanged calls with the station you are attempting to work.  Otherwise you would not be sending reports yet.  So at this point you know who you are working and so does he.  Therefore if he receives your "RRR DX" (or "DX RRR"), he knows it is for him since he already copied your call and his together.

      Others who receive that message know that they are not working you and so they ignore it.  Those other stations do not need to know who the message was intended for.  They only need to know that the message is not from a station that they are working.
