    I contacted a station in Italy who was calling CQ test. When I answered him, this happened:


    Now, I can no longer complete a qso (even after restarting wsjt-x) or log contacts:


    Note: WA9THI never appears in my log.

    Anybody know how to fix this?

    Hi Bob.

    I have had this happen to me also, what interests me is why it happens when you are not in a contest.
    I see you found your own answer.

    Glad I saw this thread. Same thing happened to me.

    Same thing happened to me. I disabled it in the settings. However, once the contest mode is enabled it fails to properly log or respond to contest contacts. No help from the Online Help.

    I'm not sure how the contest mode is supposed to work.

    I've never seen those odd numbers in operation but I occasionally see them noted as a report in the log.
