10GHz operation from Belgium.
So what do we do here? It’s probably not 10GHz but if rejected how do you spot 10GHz operation?

OK, so here we have a letter ‘O’ instead of a 0. Reject it as not a number?
In both cases, we humans can apply a bit of context and figure out what was meant and tune a radio to the frequency. Computers require a fair amount of programming to extract 144.550MHz from the second one, it can be done but I got bored and having fixed simple mistakes, I dump the nonsense and put 0.0 on the cluster. It means “go look at what was typed and figure it out yourself.”
Both of these spots were from ops on a hill using a phone and mistakes should be expected. Bring back proper keyboards not this touch rubbish!
