I was surprised at no comments on my message about dups or the ARRL policy
decision that if it is not CW or Phone, it is Digital.
How about Write Log, N1MM etc. Do they log PSK-31 and RTTY as separate modes or
will they tilt on the same call and band if one is PSK-31 and the other is RTTY?
It was interesting today to note K2K Special Event was running PSK-63 and BSK-1
on 20 meters. I worked K2K in PSK-63 as a digital mode and passed when K2K
showed up again in PSK-31.
