Fw: [wsjtgroup] HF JT65 Grid Designator
- What about an mobile operator or on vacation? The grid designator would be necessary because a look up would give only the station QTH. The power and antenna can be added to the 73 message.John KG4OLG - EM29df----- Forwarded Message ----

Well.... I find it easier to look up K2TXB to find out where it is rather
than looking up BP51ho. A matter of opinion no doubt . Perhaps on JT65/HF
we should use the same designators as on WSPR.
Call,Grid,dBm of transmitting station.
