Oh, wow.  This is one of those things that, try as I might, I could
never seem to learn.  I run with autosend count = 3, but could not
consistently prevent myself from typing in JA1/WB6 instead of stopping
after JA1.  My mental model for the call breaks at the end of the suffix
and could not be overcome.  I never asked for a fix, but thank you,
thank you, thank you.
