Re: QRUW2CXM objects (was: FreqSpec Homework...)

?? before a call means that the D700/7/710/72 decoded the packet, but doesn't understand the format -or- doesn't know what to do with that particular packet. It is better than not flashing a callsign on the screen at all, but not by much. Since that packet from the object doesn't contain a position or the radio doesn't already have a position for the object, it will just ignored the packet, other than the quick flash of the callsign.

it's not even doing that.

The D700 displays an object for the QRUW2CXM as it does for any other object.

The D710 does not show the object. I can see the "??QRUW2CXM" flash in the display of the D710 when the packet comes accross, but it doesn't translate to a displayable object.
