- When using F1 or F2 to call CQ with (regardless of mode), the program will remember the frequency you are calling CQ on (requires interfaced radio). If you go off to work a station on a different frequency (i.e. by grabbing an entry from the band map), you can now return to your run frequency using one of two methods:
- 1. Use the function key command LASTCQFREQ. To enter a function key command, put a Control-C in the function key message, then the command, followed by a Control-D. You can enter control characters while using the Alt-P command by preceding them with a Control-P.
- 2. Use the external footswitch and set the FOOT SWITCH MODE to LASTCQFREQ.
- TR now uses its own serial port initialization routines. This has at least two advantages. First, if your BIOS doesnt recognize your serial port, TR will still try to initialize it. Secondly, TR now turns on both RTS and DTR signals which is the more "proper" thing to do. However, if you also assign the serial port as a CW output port, the signals will be used for CW and PTT instead.
- If you called a station in Search and Pounce by entering his call and pressing RETURN, the band map entry was not correct until you finished the QSO. This has been fixed.
- If you started up the program wihtout a LOGCFG.DAT file, some of the contest selctions would not work correctly. This has been fixed.
- In the last version, I tried to speed up the search and pounce mode by logging the QSO after the display has been updated. This worked okay except some of the info on the screen was then one QSO behind. I went back to logging the QSO and then refreshing the displays.
- Added RADIO ONE UPDATE SECONDS and RADIO TWO UPDATE SECONDS (Control-J). These allow you to slow down how often the program goes to the radio and asks for its frequency.
