Thanks for the new version of WSPR - I like the upgrade - especially the CAT control!
One minor point relevant to changing bands: I was on 40m this morning and in the middle of a cycle changed from 40m to 10m and all went well. However, when I looked at the online database, I saw that a station (VE3FAL) which was actually on 40m was logged as a 10m observation by my station.
So, I suggest that when the band is changed, somehow you should prevent uploads from any data in the current cycle to preclude erroneous data.
...And NO I did NOT observe VE3FAL on 10m this morning! False alarm! Hopefully it will open a bit later today - I'll leave my station parked there to see what happens.
