Re: WAS FT4 confirmation

OK, I guess I was thinking about DXCC totals and not really about WAS. I
was unaware that WAS allowed so many different mode endorsements.

Thanks for the clarification.

+ AA6YQ comments below

I agree, at least for now, these QSOs are all "digital" as far as LOTW
totals are concerned. This goes for RTTY, FT8, FT4 and
whatever.

+ That's not correct. Mode-specific WAS endorsements -- like those offered
for FT8 and FT4 -- require both participants of a QSO to
submit their QSO with the exact mode correctly specified.

+ That some application developers can't correctly implement mode
representations that were agreed upon more than 6 years ago is
unfortunate, particularly when some of them sow additional confusion by
blaming LoTW or ADIF.
