Hi Ned and all,
Yes, you will find some quaint peculiarities in the way MAP65 operates.
The particular one that you mention -- the Band Map being not very
fussy about what it considers a "callsign" -- is one that I have not
considered annoying enough to devote the time necessary to correct.
An item now appears in the Band Map because it was the second "word" in
a decoded text message. No testing is done to see if it bears any
resemblance to a callsign.
Despite what I've said, I appreciate the report and suggestion. Please
keep the copmments coming! In due course, I'll devote the time to do a
lot of this sort of program polishing. Recently, however, I've given
higher priority to several other tasks: for example, writing a wholly
new EME chapter for the 2010 ARRL Handbook and creating the "-IQ"
version of MAP65. A Manual for MAP65 needs to be written, also.
