Re: [V4Protocol] Re: Net control using V4Chat and BELL
- Rick. Believe it, I understand the impact of the loss of Vic. My suggestion is kind of "BELLs and wistles".... Also charaterset UTF8 in due time would be handy.
But I don't understand that you can have time for doing anything else than programming. Perhaps wife is steering the car all the time so no conflict, and you are a back seat "programmer" when on the road, hihi.
Take it as mere suggestion at a time I remember it, for perhaps doing it when times comes.

That is both a Windows restriction and a logical restriction. (Just like you and your wife canât drive the same car in two directions at the same time!)
> And yes a special function could be done to intercept a special character and play a bell sound when it is received. There are also things I can do to increase the speed and improve the weak signal response and increase the robustness of V4. But honestly I just donât have the time now to do this. When Vic passed away we lost a significant (and very productive) fraction of our Winlink programming team so now we all are picking up the work Vic was doing and implementing important improvements on some of the Winlink programs and systems.

- I agree. Finding some one is hit and more like missDonva7dgp

It is in good use every day. Just post a message there, and you will be
talking V4 in a matter of minutes!
Also take a look at the 30m Band Utilization Chart to see where V4 fits
