It is quite disgusting if you are calling a beaconing station which is replying with a report and “away” status and this perhaps for 7/24. Please note that this comment is only for stations in a continuous “away” -status. I perceive it as someone targeting to log a VarAC contact as a Data- QSO in an easy fashion. Well, it is not really a QSO isn't it? Perhaps beaconing stations in a continuous “away” status shall be handled differently.
Would appreciate your comment on captioned topic.
Well I see this as real robust software package that's only being used mostly for propagation status (wheres my signal going) such a shame the developers im sure didn't put in all those hours building this just for the beacon feature its a chat mode also which is where it shines the most you can find a few stray qso's on here but not many a good 80 percent are just beacons this software is totally awesome but not used to its potential
Simply do not log if you do not have a real keyboard to keyboard QSO. But Beacons are not the same as someone calling CQ. And the AWAY is a clue they may not be there.
