Reply to Bill,

I have done this with N1MM, I believe it happens if you log the contact 
before the other station acknowledges the report and he asks for a 
repeat. This is when using ESM and maybe a Macro in the DI window. I am 
not sure of the exact sequence, but it is pilot error, not the software.
