i have started seeing this FT8 spot with my call sign show up after updating WSJT. i know this is dxlab group but i use dxlab as my logging software. i can call one station and i will see a spot for my call show up then the Source station will changes maybe 10 times in the next min.
without me making another transmission.i have looked in both spot collector and wsjt and turned off all psk and anything that might cause this spotting. i am thinking it is either skimmers or a rev beacon. i feel this just add's to the dx cluster over head and not needed. anyone have any ideal.
BTW i asked this on the JTLERT ground and was told i needed to learn how to use my software or go QRT. nice bunch .. wont be going back there.
