I caught this in FT8, did someone just enter <...> as their call sign or is this code for something?

From the WSJT-X documentation:

Angle brackets imply that the enclosed callsign is not transmitted in full, but rather as a hash code using a smaller number of bits. Receiving stations will display the full nonstandard callsign if it has been received in full in the recent past. Otherwise it will be displayed as <...>.


This is an interesting read about FT8 callsign hashes: http://www.dx.nl/?p=1478
