I was testing my set up with a few locals for the Up-Coming WWDIGI 
Contest, and we discovered something, that is NOT a HUGE issue, but 
looking for a workaround.

here is what happened.

N9UDO calling CQ

W9ET answers CQ with 'N9UDO W9ET EN43'

N9UDO replies with 'W9ET N9UDO R EN53'

W9ET responds by sending 73 round

N9UDO does not hear the 73 and keeps re-sending 'W9ET N9UDO R EN53'

W9ET is not aware that this is happening because it's TX has been turned 
off because the contact was logged. And W9ET is off looking for the next 
S&P to try to get.

This is with the N1MM+ & WSJT-X set up. Running with the Auto Log box 
checked and the special contest with the NA VHF chosen.

N9UDO can manually add the EN43 and manually log the contact,

Thinking if the 73 is it a must have for a valid contact?  if so, maybe 
the W9ET side should not shut off the TX enable button till it gets the 73?

or how should this situation be handled?
