    Try as I might, clicking on his call will not initiate a transmission. So then I filled in a Free Message and established contact but then the AutoSeq didn't want to recognize it. So I tried filling in a sig rprt but the program refused to send it. Tried various things to no avail.
    Weird. Major glitch. I suspect it might have something to do with the 73 in his callsign?

    Anybody else seen this?

    FT8 ? WSJT-X ? Have you tried JTDX instead ?

    Yes, FT8 and WSJT-X. I've worked J73WA in the past on multiple bands with no problem.
    I tried JTDX a long time ago but didn't stick with it. I'm really not wanting to change. I was hoping someone might have an explanation.

    I'm guessing that you've run up against the message length in FT8. In other words, if the LZ call was one character shorter, you would have not encountered this issue.

    No, not that. Even when I manually tried to send the call with a report (11 characters) it would not let me send. A 'too long' special call never has any problem.

    Try this: enter LZ73TRC in DX Call and then click Generate Std Msgs.

    Aha! That might work. Thanks.
