Odd WSJT WSPR behavior

edited June 18 in SmartSDR for Windows
Just for fun I ran WSJT WSPR on 30 & 20 to see what was coming in. Weirdly I get identical stations and signal reports on both bands. However FT8 does not so this. Running 2.4.9, Slicemaster v0.10.6b and WSJT-X v2.0.1 7ddcb7

    Check your DAX assignments for both slices in WSJT-X. Might be listening to the same DAX channel on both WSJT-X instances.

    Good call but they are both different DAX channels.

    Might be the way it uploads with more than 1 instance of WSJT running?

    Did you start wsjt-x on different config directories, Zack? Each instance needs to be started with the command-line option to start on a fresh configuration set (directory, actually). My apologies if you are already doing this - I have no intention to insult your intelligence.

    Does this only happen on the 1st of the 4th month of the year?

    I did not start WSJT in different config directories. However Slicemaster lets you run two instances of it. WSJT FT8 works fine this way using two different slices. 
    Looks like I will have to start WSJT in different config directories to monitor WSPR from two different slices.
