Subject: [DXLab] Trying to understand my error - an inadvertent spot
Last night at 0420Z I saw on DXSummit a spot for 6O7O on 7017. So, I set about preparing to give it a shot.
I changed WinWarbler to CW mode and ran the WW macro to set the K3 on 7010 (my default freq) in CW mode.
I entered 6O7O into the Call field on the WW QSO Info pane and hit Tab.
Then I entered 6O7O into the callsign field in the Search box on DXView. In DXV, the letters of 6O7O turned red, and I clicked the GO button.
While I was tuning my rig up to 7017 I happened to glance at Spot Collector and saw that there was a spot for 6O7O at 7010 – posted by me!!
That’s all I can recall doing.
My personal protocol is that I do not spot anything I haven’t worked (cuts down on the competition in the pile-ups).
I am wondering how I managed to spot 6O7O – so that I can avoid doing that sort of thing again.
