  • Revised protocol passed between linked computers to allow QSO numbers by band. Older versions are not compatible.

  • Fixed bugs related to the CHECK MULT and SCORE windows in contests where QSOs are counted by band but mults by mode.

[ TOP OF PAGE ]

  • Split frequency would not be set correctly on the IC-756.

  • Program would crash if a QSO was logged with the Abbreviations List window open and there was no multiplier alias file (tnx many reports).

  • With two radios, Check Partial was always checking the band of radio #1 and alternate radio Check Partial was always checking the band of radio #2. Program now correctly reflects the band(s) of the active radio configuration.

  • With two radios, setting the main VFO (Return, Alt-Return) would not set the correct radio if Radio #2 is master.

  • Fixed crash of "radio-centered" band map.

  • Check partial would not update when deleting a character.

  • Ten minute band timer would reset on remote QSO coming in over network.

  • Radio polling interval for FT-920 was 15 seconds, should be 3 seconds.

  • ADIF files made from CQWW logs were missing RSTs and rcvd zone - fixed.

  • Score Window would show 24 GHz band as 10 GHz.

  • Phantom problem where the spacebar would no longer move from field to field, apparently caused during two-radio operation. To avoid this, Alt-D (Check Alternate Call) is only enabled when cursor is in callsign field. Also, Alt-D now starts with a blank call at each invocation.

  • With multiple linked computers, an incoming QSO would overwrite the MULTIPLIER SCREEN. Also, when a QSO was edited on a remote machine, the current editing field on the local machine would be temporarily hidden.

  • In SHOW QSOS WITH window, QSOs with longer calls should show up on lists for shorter calls (i.e., K6BZS would show on a list for K6BZ).

  • Non-mult DX was not allowed in CA QSO Party for in-state QSOs. New CALQSO1.CRT template released.

  • PA QSO Party points rule added. Template Editor version 1.07 released to allow this points selection. Also, new PAQP templates released (both in and out state).

  • With two radios, adding Alt to Return or Minus keys allows setting main or alternate VFO on the non-main radio.

  • Band Map can be set to either moving frequency or fixed frequency with new option on the PROGRAM OPTIONS CONTROL PANEL (default is moving).

  • The -GW (western grids only) switch was broken.

  • Added FM and RTTY modes. For scoring, FM counts the same as SSB, so in certain places like the score window, the "SSB" label is now "PH" or "PHONE". Note: SSB, FM & AM all score as "Phone" while all the digital modes (CW, FSK, Packet) score as "CW". New version of NAU (1.25) provided to support the new modes.

  • Program now writes an "Amateur Data Interchange Format" (ADIF) file when log files are written to disk. See UPDATE.DOC for details.

  • Additions/fixes to NAQSL Version 3.13:
