Confused again on message sequence
- In JT65A for HF, can someone tell what is expected if answering CQ ?
Should I send TX1 and then TX3 (assuming I got his TX2) or should I
start responding with TX2 and then a TX3 ?

With WSJT 5.9.7, hit "Shift-F5" to see model QSOs using the
1. answer a CQ by sending message #1 (calls but no report)
2. He comes back to you with #2 (calls and OOO or calls+report)
3. You reply with #3 (RO or calls+R+rpt)
4. He sends acknowledgment (RRR or calls+RRR)
5. Send 73, or whatever you like.
These are optimized for EME QSOs. Obviously on HF you have more
flexibility. If S/N is greater than about -24 dB, standard
messages and "plain text" up to 13 characters will nearly always
be decoded correctly. With weaker signals, down to about -30
dB, the shorthands RO, RRR, and 73 will be decodable.
