Re: WSJT-X import for FT Roundup contest

Scott Davis

Hi Steve,

Thanks for your e-mail.  Version 3.6 of my ARRL RTTY RU software was released prior to the ADIF committee defining their ADIF spec to use a mode / submode scheme to transfer FT4.  All of my software will address that in the next global release planned for January.  

Since ARRL RTTY RU wasn't designed with this weekend's contest in mind, I was planning to release version 3.7, along with the rest of the contest programs in a couple weeks, but your e-mail prompted me to go ahead and upload it now.  

I still recommend logging in real time via the API as detailed here:

That said, if you do decide to transfer via ADIF after the contest instead, with version 3.7, you won't lose the sub mode resolution.  

Please go ahead and give 3.7 a try and let me know how you make out.  You will find ARRL RTTY RU 3.7 here:

FT4 is a submode of MFSK as defined in the ADIF spec. The current version ADIF Master has FT4 correctly listed as a submode of MFSK.
