Part of the rules of every contest is the definition of what comprises a full and legal exchange for the purposes of that contest. For most VHF contests, including the ARRL contests and the CQ WW contest now in progress, the information that must be correctly exchanged is the 4-character grid square of each operator. You can find the rules for any contest on the Internet, usually on the sponsoring organization’s website. Just google for it.WSJT has made formatting contest messages easy by providing a template for “grids” exchanges. In the Setup >> Options dialog box, just click the Grids radio button, then click the Reset and Gen Msgs button and close the Setup >> Options dialogs. Your messages will now automatically use your grid square instead of signal report and will be correctly formatted automatically. You don’t have to change the messages in any way. The Setup >> Options dialog does that for you.See the WSJT manual for a more complete explanation.Hope this helps. If not, try to be more specific.Bill W5WVOHi...Can someone point me to an explanation of the TX sequence format for contests..?Thanks...Jordan VE6ZT
