I would think it is because some enter the entire Grid Sq locator which
is 6 numbers. others just enter 4.
really does not matter if it is 4 or 6. IMHO Grids are for use on VHF
freqs not HT . i think WSJT-X used on HF should list state instead of
but to each his own.

Example below ... these two stations are B4
but when I ran the rebuild alert db they did
not clear but remain as wanted grids.
