I can confirm this defect.

The cause is the leaking of logged 6 character grids back into JTAlert for Grid alerting. This only occurs for compound callsigns where their grid cannot be included in the standard decode messages and a 6 character grid has been logged, as is the case for the two callsigns shown, 4A50CRH & ZA/IK2RLM.

This has been corrected for the next JTAlert release.
