New Version of WSJT-X Will Accommodate Non-Standard Call Signs

Those of you who plan to contact the special event stations in the previous item using FT4 or FT8 may want to first download the latest release of WSJT-X, version 2.5.1. 

According to the ARRL Letter, the main change from the previous version is improved ability to handle compound and non-standard call signs, particularly when using Q65 or JT65. The upgraded software also includes a new feature for working microwave aircraft scatter.
