Well, FT8 only sends 4 places no matter what is put in.

So the 6 places must come from some lookup somewhere.

As for grids, are you not aware that there are at
least a few awards (HF, worldwide) based on grids
worked ... ?? Why do you supposed Laurie spent a
good chunk of his life creating the grids-worked
database and alerts for unworked grids? not just
for VHF.
