I was on patrol in the Med, when I spotted a merchant.. Not knowing what it does or how it works, I sent a 'contacts report'. (To the BDU?) A few minutes later two german fighters dropped down on the merchant, sinking it... Was this the result of my contacts report or just coincidence?

That sometimes happens, and I think it's due to your contact report, but there are more knowledgable people on this board who'd know....

Before 1.4 in the message window when I pressed send contact report, it would actually show in the sent messages but since 1.4 the only way I have been able to do it is via the crewman icon in the bottom left. Anyone else experienced this?

i think this is how it works:
you send a contact report, if there are any friendly planes near by they provide air support

Yes I know, but I don't know if it worked 'manually' in 1.0? didn't try it...
