Re: [wsjt-devel] Settings, popups

2017-08-09 Thread Steven Franke
Thanks for catching the misspelling Seb - it has been corrected. The advanced tab checkbox for two-pass decoding only affects JT65 operation, so the hover text is correct as it stands. In FT8, two-pass decoding is automatically selected whenever the Decode level is set to Normal or Deep.
