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 Grids.
but to each his own.

I don't know where JTalert gets the 6-digit
grid locators that occaisionally show in the
Decodes window, but apparently when one
rebuilds the Alert database they don't register
with the first four characters ... 

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