I can understand this statement, however.. I for one can assure you that
Knowing that there is a data base in the program is EAISLY overcome, with
one simple step.. you don't fill in the call sign or grid box.. and you put
your radio on desired frequency and listen. None of my low power eme qso's
had pre filled in fields waiting for pro-signs to confirm a qso. So with
that being said.. enjoy your pseudo QRP eme qso's using jt65, I know I did..
and when I get back on the air.. I will again.
