I've tried remembering the details, but it was 6-7 years ago. It was a minor event, so I don't recall much. In version 1.6 (maybe 1.7), you could configure it to transmit CQ and it would do so for a period of time, and respond to anyone who responded to your CQ automatically, then start calling CQ again. That's how I typically operated.BTW, I should have mentioned that I run FT8/FT4 all the time (but also CW/SSB). So the very complaint I have about awards being diluted is partially my own fault, if my logic is correct
I did try FT4, but back then, hardly anyone was using it as it had just come out, and FT8 was all the rage.
