Re: [wsjtgroup] Digest Number 377
- Hi --
Just a comment from a newbie -- I read somewhere among all the pages
I've collected on WSJT and MS that someone -- and I wish I remembered
who! -- that it would be a good idea to add our call suffixes to the
short messages, BUT the author also noted that unless they were added
BEFORE the short msg, they would be lopped off. I have know way of
knowing if this is true or not.
Anyway, it seemed a very good idea to me, and I have done that in my
standard message form-- thus:
I love this mode! Thanks everyone for welcoming me.

- GM Clair - we add call or call suffix to the normal ST/Sh messages for
Randon Hour, Sprints and other activities where everyone is on call
freqs so we can tell who's sending what. One or two earlier versions on
WSJT would not default to multitone if if the call/suffix was added
after the R26/27, RRR or 73 and was sending ST/Sh. Current version
(4.6.1) is FB if it is added before or after - any message in message
boxes 3,4,and 5 will now default to MT's if longer than the standard 3
characters even if Sh box is checked. Of course you can also uncheck
the Sh box to be sure!
