I have tried that as well...  I have just convinced myself it is a bug
in the program...

I entered, NK7I, (he is on), and got a match and an alert.  I entered,
JT1CO, and got an alert.  I entered B1CRA, and saw him decode, and got
no alert...

I think it is the lack of two letters in the first two positions of the
call that is causing issues.

My first try was with exact matches, as I mentioned up thread, then I
went to wildcards to test.  Under no condition can I get an alert from
B1CRA, B2CRA, etc...

Guess we will need to wait for Laurie to return to solve this...

73, and thanks,
