WSJT-X v2.2.2 is a bug fix release, mainly to incorporate the new RAC section PE into the FT8/FT4/MSK144 Contest Mode for Field Day.
– Stations intending to operate in Field Day (FD) are urged to upgrade to this release, without it you cannot set your section to PE, and of equal importance you cannot decode contest messages from stations who are operating from PE without this upgrade.
– FT8 decoder speeded up in Normal and Fast modes. This change gives a speed of decoding closer to that of v2.1.2 without compromising the number of decodes. It is particularly targeted for slower single board computer users such as the Raspberry Pi Model 3 or similar.
– Thanks to our user interface language translation contributors for many improvements to the translated strings.
– The DX Grid field is now cleared automatically when the DX Call field is changed. Care should be taken to complete entry of a callsign before entering a grid square.
