Hello Franco,

Reading the log, one of your connection requests was received
correctly but the server call sign was missing the "-3" at the end: it
should have been IS0GRB-3 instead of IS0GRB. You should get a connect
then, no problems.

Also, the other connection request was not received correctly (QRM or
other) so I suggest you try a slower mode for the connection like
psk250R if you were using psk500R. In any case the server will adjust
the mode up if the signal quality is good.

Good luck,

73, John
