Bandmaps, entry windows and the mysteries thereof...
- Having two entry windows has changed the way the
program needs to behave. We are very close to
having it working optimally for the next contest
Here is what you should be able to do:
Change keyboard focus with \.
Change keyboard and xmit focus with ctl-left/right.
With one vfo on one band, and another on
the same or second band, you should be able to jump
from spot-to-spot using ctl-up/down on the
main vfo. With ctl-shift-up/down, you should
be able to jump from spot to spot on the
secondary vfo. If your radio has dual receive
(Orion, FT-1000/MP), you should be able to
listen to both vfos at once. Ctl-F12 will toggle
between listening to the vfo with keyboard
focus and both vfos.
With the Orion and FT-1000/MP, the way I envision
this being used in s&p: You would find a station
on the main vfo, and wait for it. In dual
receive, you would used Ctl-shift up/down to find
another station that is ready to be worked. You
would call whichever station is ready first. This
could be done on two bands (SOA), or on a single
band (MM). If one has spotted a number of
calls locally, one could use it on one or more
bands in SO.
Clicking on a spot on either bandmap will set that
vfo to keyboard & transmit focus, and put the call
in the callframe. Double-clicking will put the
call in the call textbox. Clicking on a spot
was not setting focus properly prior to version
Please print and read the keyboard assignments help.
Your will be rewarded with greater enjoyment of
the program. Trust me.
