Try bandplan_user_dxcc291.xml
Terry,
I thought you might have it but that doesn't work either. bandplan_dxcc291_user.xml does work but only when bandplan_dxcc291.xml is either gone or renamed.

I also discovered an error in my original solution. I am running "split" in WSJT-X so the dial frequency can go below 5,357 Khz to as low as 5,355.5 Khz if the transmitted audio is less than 500 Hz. The rig still transmits and the QSO is logged but you see this Out Of Band warning:
OOB Alert.png

This is fixed by changing the lower band edge to 5,355.495 Khz.
Corrected 291 bandplan.png
Corrected 291 bandplan.png (7.31 KiB) Viewed 218 times
This comes about because in the main UI, Dial Frequency is being checked against the bandplan whereas in the log, Dial Frequency + transmitted audio is checked against the bandplan. It looks like I'm defining a band from 5,355.5 Khz to 5,359.8 Khz but not really. It is still 2.8 Khz starting at 5,357 Khz.

I looked at the log in Log4OM hoping it would show which bandplan document is being loaded at startup, but it does not.

Tom
It will be the 291 bandplan but I will need to speak to Lele about why a user file is ignored

We have similar exceptions on 60m in the UK because of very restricted channel widths but managed to adjust the band plans accordingly
