Good for you posting the update info. I have been testing V2 rc4 and now rc5. I was on air this evening on 40 m.
It addresses most of the whinges people had about V1.9 - expanded call signs, not being able to call CQ SOTA, wider range of colors to denote different categories of station worked, better decoding on some modes etc.
To continue using V1.9 is a bit like choosing to continue with DOS 6. I liked DOS 6 and lamented the introduction of Windows. However the greater capability had me upgrading soon after.
Yes the number of people using V2 is small at present - they are the Beta testers - but there will be a significant uptake of the public release before New Year.
If you can figure out how to use V1.9 then you can use V2 It is not complicated.
Many self inflicted problems are caused by people not reading the release notes or even the pop-up that comes on screen every time V2 rc4 is started. The same dumb questions get asked several times a day and a couple of patient souls spend time answering them.
Some don’t even understand RTFM!
Yes some will persist with V1.9 but it will be abandoned by the serious DX people.
I hope we can work again one day Ed.
