Re: A can of worms?


Graham, you are a subscriber to this lowly reflector? We're honored/humbled with your interest/presence. Your words of wisdom are appreciated.

A couple of weeks ago I was (anonymously) made aware of the ARRL/LoTW representation to the the ADIF Meisters to include FST4 as a new MFSK submode. My reply to my source is unprintable Sir, don't shoot the messenger. I call it like I see it. No hidden agenda.

The ADIF meisters decree a new submode for MFSK. So be it. Logger32 (as pathetic as it is) now accepts FST4 as an MFSK submode.

Who am I supposed to question about this very questionable mandate? Those that promulgate the directive, (or those that with their heads up their ass) that pressured (because of their totally undeserving omnipotence} you to do it?

Graham, call me out if you like, I have no problem with that, but to hide behind the wishes of the ARRL/LoTW for your decrees/mandates is not acceptable.

Once again you (and your merry men) blew it. Admit it. SeventryThree(s)

Save the sarcasm for the ARRL and K1JT and take it up with them if it is unsatisfactory.

"The current beta version of WSJT-X (2.3.0) includes a new mode, FST4.  ARRL has been discussing this release with K1JT, who has agreed to use "MODE=MFSK, SUBMODE=FST4" for QSOs using that new encoding scheme."
