Auto correct has nothing to do with what Trey documented.  Auto correct 
is used when you send the + key for confirming/logging the QSO.  When you 
send your report to a station in CT during S&P you can use F3 or INSERT 
to send the report.  F3 sends only the report.  INSERT sends the other 
station's callsign and the report.  The error being made is that these 
guys don't know to use the F3 key for sending a report during a S&P QSO.

This error is being made regardless of the state of the auto-correct flag.
