Decoding of a received sequence starts at t=53 seconds.
With a reasonably fast computer this usually means you will
see the decoded message several seconds before your next Tx
If someone answers your CQ, double-click on his callsign.
This generates the desired Tx message for you to come back
to the calling station.
You can do this even if your decoding was slow and you have
already started transmitting. Changing messages after
transmission has begun will produce some loss of sensitivity
at the receiving end, but it generally works OK if done in
the first 10 seconds or so.
