I have no idea what software package even suggest using the dots. I see
them all the time on PSK31.
The item that bugged me was the operators that failed to use a space in
between calls and then use a dash in the reports. For example, I would
see K9LIDK9LIDK9LID without a space and it was hard to mouse select
the call. Then the reports saying 599 IL-IL were just as bad. Some were
sending 599 IL-IL IL and that was okay because you can select the IL.
Congrats Susan.... very nice work!

Ps: Bill W6WRT.... very nice effort. Thanks for the Q¹s. Back in my
motorcycle days there was an Iron Butt ride. Your 2010 RTTY RU effort
would qualify you for the Iron Butt run .
