Strange SOTAWATCH Behaviour

Having made a change to my APRS2SOTA I was just trying to test what happened, for which I - intentionally sent the info for a non-existent summit expecting to get an error message back from SotaWatch2 but not such error was returned.

It seems that a spot using such a summit reference is silently accepted by SotaWatch 2 but no spot ever appears, whilst SotaWatch3 just leaves the ‘Add SOTA Spot’ entry box on the screen - also without any error message being apparent.

Neither of these was what I really expected to happen !
