locked Re: Matching Callsign - Solved

Turns out the LoTW filter was killing the alert... Even though I had call sign selected, and had it at the top of the alert list, I also had do not show unless LoTW set. That blocked the alert, so the trigger failed... Thanks! Having folks test it, and show it was working helped a lot!

Can you retest that please? The instructions indicate that it is only
good for a single character. It multi, then I will start using it like
that as well.

Hi,

That won't work out of the box. As per the help file, the matching
function only works for a single character, and only a single matching
character is allowed.

To see the instructions for matching, use "SEARCH", and look for "wildcard".

I am trying to match an exact callsign, I see in the decode window, and
that is failing... I am at a loss here...

Hi,
Thanks for the suggestion, however, that won't work, the matching only
works for the last single letter.
