[na-user] CQP (?) Dupe Checking Glitch
Mon, 9 Oct 2000 08:30:42 -0500
Had the very same problem here. I assumed it had to do with the "QTH must
match for dup" switch which I used for the first time.
I did notice that even if the dup alert did not flash, the previous contact
was still shown in the "Check Call" box in a different color. That kept me
alerted and saved a number of dups.

| Running the CQP this weekend, I found that the dupe checking worked

| dupes where the original qsos made before or after it was enabled.
| The problem was that entering a call and hitting a space would not alert

| If the non-alerted dupe was entered, it would be recorded as a dupe.
