Hi all.
Yes we know that the ROS Software use now our node to send spots.
What is the problem?

What is the difference between RTTY, PSK31 or ROS?? all are digital modes...

The ROS software creator inform us that the auto spots was disable in the 
latest updates.

Hello Laurie

Does the sysop of EA4RCH-5 know what is going on ?
  I am reluctant to blacklist a cluster if the sysop is willing to tackle
the problem
