In reply to W4DOW:
Yes I have Worked NA6MG/P = 78 TIMES and DF2GN/p 53 Times and have got almost that many QSL Cards From DF2GN/p via eqsl.cc all with the /p after his call…
I would expect Klaus to confirm with a /P as that is consistent for how he activates…I would not expect Dan to confirm qso’s with /P as that is NOT how he activates. If you have confirmations from Dan as /P when on SOTA activations, then I’m not sure of what to say. Perhaps Dan is the best person to consult to see how he operates and logs and confirms.
Sure, the majority of activators do seem to use “/P”, but if an activator chooses not to use “/P” then it’d be nice if the spots respected that, and didn’t have “/P” added when no “/P” was sent.

Regarding the use of /P or not and the spots on Sotawatch2, I 100% support what N7UN wrote here earlier and others later: spotters should follow the lead of the Activator, i.e. if the Activator is signing /p and/or the Activator Alert is /p then spot the call the same way.
