- Fixed AutoDisplayDupeQSO and SCP incompatability. If you had the SCP function enabled AND the AutoDisplayDupeQSO feature enabled, the dupe information would be over-written before you could read it.
- Fixed non exisitant country crashing beam headings.
- Fixed divide by zero error causing problems with some beam headings.
- Added beam heading and distance utility in POST (utility menu).
- Added name editor for TRMASTER.DAT. It is similar to the old name editor used for the NAMES.CMQ file.
- Added SCP WINDOW DUPE COLOR and SCP WINDOW DUPE BACKGROUND commands. This lets you change the colors used in the SCP display for the dupes.
- There are now three user definable data fields in the TRMASTER database. They are USER1, USER2 and USER3. Each can hold up to 12 characters of data.
Data can be loaded into them from either a LOG.DAT file or an ASCII file with the callsign followed by the data. There is a general purpose load function in the TRMASTER Add Menu for this.
You can use the data for an intial exchange (ie: INITIAL EXCHANGE = USER 1) or you can just display the data under the call window when working the station (ie: USER INFO SHOWN = USER 2). You can select both of these from the Control-J menu.
Use USER INFO WINDOW COLOR and USER INFO WINDOW BACKGROUND if you want to change the colors of the display window.
- If you are tired of the program telling you your code speed is 35 WPM when on SSB, you will be happy to know this has finally been fixed. The start sending arrow is also removed in SSB. I believe this only occured when you changed modes using the radio, not the program.
- If you are using the two radio mode and the band map, the band map will now jump to the band that matches the radio being tuned. I think this will be a fun feature for us two radio addicts. You need to tune the radio at least 200 hertz before this will happen.
- The Control-Y command will now refresh the time stamp of the band map entry that is blinking. This means you dont have to use the Alt-D command and type in the callsign if you are using the band map on the second radio.
- There have been some improvements to the band map. There were times when the band map seemed to hang up while in the search and pounce mode. This has been fixed. The band map will no longer respond to the radio QSYing to the QSX frequency set with the Alt-N command (which used to be the \ command).
- There were about 3 things broken with the remaining country list as a result of adding the CTY.DAT file. First, the normal list had too many entries in it and the top line was scrolling out of the window. Next, the big remaining list was not accessable with the BIG REMAINING LIST, but now is. Finally, if you changed from one list to the other with Control-J while the program was running, the correct status was not shown. Now the remaining list is recalculated when changing the size with Control-J.
- The \ key feature to allow entry of xmit frequency had one major drawback, it used the call window for the frequency input. This meant if you already had a call in the call window, you had to erase the call, enter the split, then reenter the call. This has been changed so the \ character opens up a window to enter the frequency without affecting the contents of the call window.
- The other problem with the \ key for entering your XMIT frequency is that this key is also the QUICK QSL key. You now need to use Alt-N to enter a QSX frequency. You may also only enter the last three digits of the frequency and the program will figure out the correct frequency (ie: 237 -> 7237).
- The Control-J menu was not allowing access to the new initial exchanges added with the TRMASTER file. This has been fixed.
- Same CQ Zone fixes made in 5.85 for TR are now in POST.
