Yep...absolutely right...with Qth must match turned off autodupe works
great !!

Nope...confirmed ver 10.33 and duplicated trouble using 10m contest , 160m
and cqww ssb

No nothing else enables but this may be related to the above trouble

A few other things I noticed while trying to confirm the above.
When in the KEYER control for the PAQSO party the cursor isn't there
to indicate what option you are on but in the 10M Contest the cursor is

I am not sure how NA works but with CT unless you choose Single op Assisted
the packet receive
window wont open...with NA ver 10.33 the packet window can be opened.

CT used to allow the "/" character to be used as "qsx" when spotting
stations operating split
I understand that is "broken" in 9.37...does NA offer this??
