From version 6.50 to version 6.59

 Version 6.59 19 August 2001 

  • When receiving a RST and SERIAL number exchange, you can increment a serial number in the exchange window by pressing I (for increment).

  • Fixed up SCP COUNTRY STRING functionality. Only put the ! at the first character position if you want to exclude countries. Use a comma between each country listed. Spaces are optional. For example: K, VE, KP2, KP4, KH6, KL will include those six countries. !JA, K, VE will exclude those three countries.

  • Fixed OnDeckCall after doing a CQ on the inactive radio, so that it comes out on the right radio. OnDeckCall is a callsign that is entered in the exchange window with a / in front of it. When this is done, the callsign will be put into the call window when you log the QSO. You will have to hit ENTER again to call this station.

  • Made Control-Enter when finishing a two radio QSO not send CW. Instead, a CQ will be launched on the run radio.

  • Re-enabled digital mode in Cabrillo file.

  • Included the NAQP.DOM file that disappeared in the past couple of releases.

  • Allowed control characters in RTTY SEND and RECEIVE command by putting <> around two character hex value ( i.e., <3F><FB><03> ).

  • Allow control characters to be specified for function key memories in the config file (using the above syntax). These will not work if you use the Alt-P command.

  • Removed auto restart of auto CQ after a CQ mode QSO. I should have trusted my original instincts about this and never have put it in.

  • Fixed FQP exchange for RST and QTH.

 Version 6.58 24 April 2001 

  • Removed RTTY SEND CHARACTER and RTTY RECEIVE CHARACTER. Replaced with RTTY SEND STRING and RTTY RECEIVE STRING.

  • Added FLORIDA QSO PARTY (or just FQP).

  • Changed GetLogEntryQSONumber to allow 5 digit QSO Numbers. This fixes POST functions on logs >= 10K QSOs.

  • Improved responsiveness of footswitch for non PTT commands when using interfaced radios.

  • START SENDING NOW KEY = SPACE is fixed.

 Version 6.57 11 March 2001 

  • Fixed on deck call (\N6TR) being sent on speaker.

  • Fixed ARRL 160 setup if you were in Hawaii/Alaska or US possession.

  • Added new LOGCFG command - COUNT DOMESTIC COUNTRIES. Default is FALSE. Lets you count DX countries for domestic QSOs in addition to the domestic multiplier.

  • Fixed up Russian DX contest QSO points, added CE9 as a domestic country and fixed initial exchange so it is blank for non russians. Also, made sure domestic countries count along with the oblast.

  • Added UBA Contest and QSO Point method.

  • Added CQ WPX RTTY contest - and CQ WPX RTTY QSO point method.

  • Improved immunity of Cabrillo generator to non QSO entries (like headers).

  • Fixed LOG WITH SINGLE ENTER config command problem (always on).

  • Made AutoCQs resume automatically after QSO.

  • Fixed PE (Prince Edward Island) in domestic files that have Canada.

 Version 6.56 1 December 2000 

  • Fixed POST not doing dupe check.

  • Fixed runtime 204 with invalid input for frequency.

  • Doubled length of DVK start pulse.

  • Fixed FT100 frequency reading and split operation.

 Version 6.55 14 November 2000 

  • Allowed Alt-D command to be processed after entering a callsign and AUTO CALL TERMINATE. However, the CQ EXCHANGE won’t be sent until the Alt-D window is closed. However, at least now you won’t be entering the callsign into the call window.

  • Added DUPE SHEET ENABLE (Control-J - True). When FALSE disables the addition of calls to the dupesheet. This might be used if you don’t care about working dupes and want to conserve memory.

  • When entering an exchange while making a second radio QSO with the Alt-D function, you may now enter a callsign of a station who is answering your "dummy" CQ. You can enter it in the exchange window by putting a / in the front of the call (i.e., 12A 67NTX /N6TR). When you do this - there will be no CQ called at the end of the QSO and N6TR will be put into the call window ready for you to answer by pressing RETURN.

  • Control-] gives a new info screen. This shows the time on distribution by band in minutes and percent. It also shows you QSO distribution for Europe, NA and Asia by band with percent. This is called the CT1BOH info screen since it was his idea.

  • New RESTART.BIN version number. This eliminates any risk of program crashes as a result of starting the program up with an older .RST file.

  • Fixed blinking band map display when two interfaced radios are on different modes.

  • Added display of the band/mode of the bandmap.

  • When sending a command to the radio in a CW message - along with a CW message - some radios (Kenwood) will ignore the command when sending CW. The program will now send the command - waiting for it to be processed by the radio, and then send the CW.

  • If you put a command in a message (using Control-C and Control-D), the program would hang if you forgot the Control-D. This has been fixed so the command will just be ignored and the program won’t hang.

  • Added SRSI to SRS commands to send inactive radio to chosen frequency.

  • Fixed TenTen for custom initial exchanges and user info.

 Version 6.54 26 October 2000 

  • Fixed POST DAT file merge procedure.

  • Fixed PTT TURN ON DELAY just before sending exchange with auto start send/terminate.

 Version 6.53 3 October 2000 

  • Added CQ WW RTTY contest and CQ WW RTTY QSO POINT METHOD.

  • Updated VK/ZL contest.

  • Changed Salmon Run QSO Point Method to 4 CW and 2 SSB.

  • Added ALWAYS CALL BLIND CQ (default = FALSE, Control-J). Will launch exchange memory F7 automatically on CW when the CQ EXCHANGE is finished.

  • Made CALLSIGN UPDATE ENABLE work when using @ in exchange.

  • Added NU to ARRL DX contest for DX stations.

  • Changed NO to NG in HUNGARY.DOM.

  • Fixed "C" and "N" to resend call and number in WAE when using QTC EXTRA SPACE.

  • Made "UP" case insensitive when in the CALL WINDOW POSITION command.

  • Fixed PACKET SPOT KEY in config file.

  • Made START SENDING NOW KEY = SPACE only work when in the call window with at least one letter in the window.

  • Improved NAQP VE mults.

 Version 6.52 3 August 2000 

  • Added PACKET SPOT KEY (default = `). This key is used to automatically send the call in the call window, or the last call worked to the packet network. The key used to be hardwired as `, but can now be changed if you don’t have that key on your keyboard.

  • Allowed SPACE for START SENDING NOW KEY command. It was requested to be able to start sending CW with the SPACE BAR. This will now be possible by putting START SENDING NOW KEY = SPACE in your config file.

  • Added PACKET SPOT DISABLE (false, Control-J). When TRUE, the packet spot key will not work.

  • Added ability to program delay into DVK messages. Use Control-C followed by DVKDELAY=xxxx and then Control-D in the message. xxxx is the number of milliseconds to delay. You can program a Control-C when using the Alt-D message editor by pressing Control-P first and then Control-C.

  • Fixed up UKRAINIAN contest:
    • Now appears on contest menu
    • Uses RST QSO NUMBER OR DOMESTIC QTC exchange
    • Counts CQDXCC countries
    • Puts UR in as a domestic country

  • Allowed 00 for Zone exchange in EU contest. Fixed up remaining multiplier list to start at zero.

 Version 6.51 1 August 2000 

  • When TAB MODE = CONTROLF, I also made Shift-Tab work as Control-A. This will make Shift-Tab move you to the next field to the left.

  • Added OHIO QSO PARTY. Make sure MY STATE = OH before your contest statement in the LOGCFG.DAT file to make it work for Ohio stations.

  • Added AP SPRINT contest (Asia-Pacific Sprint).

  • Made the ITU Zone default for VE2 zone 4 (it was zone 9).

  • Updated VE multiplier names in most of the .DOM files. The actual names are used instead of prefixes.

  • Added CALL WINDOW POSITION (NORMAL or UP). The defaul is NORMAL. There is no Control-J support for this command. It will move the call window and the information to the left of it up one line. It also changes the color of the call window to match the editable window. This makes the band/mode/date/time/QSO number and Call Window look like they are part of the editable log window.

  • Exit editable log edit with you press the down-arrow key while at the bottom entry. Don’t forget about the CONFIRM EDIT CHANGES command if you want to exit without the Save Changes prompt.

  • Made default RST work for RSTAndPostalCode exchange (ROPOCO test). It was being left blank unless you entered it into the exchange window.

  • Added LOG WITH SINGLE ENTER command (control-J - false). This will act just as if you pressed RETURN to answer a station and then Control-Enter to log the station instantly without sending the QSL MESSAGE.

  • Fixed wrong IARU zone default for MyZone.

 Version 6.50 4 June 2000 

  • Fixed up Cabrillo for WPX and other contests.

  • Updated All Asian with new QSO point structure.

  • Made some refinements to the procedure to add a call to the band map to try and eliminate some run time #204 failures seen in the WPX contest by several stations. This isn’t guaranteed to fix the problem since I wasn’t able to reproduce it.

  • Fixed some calls disappearing from call window when hitting RETURN. This was because I had left a debug message in the code that was added when working on some SCP issues - probably in 6.48.

  • Fixed Band/mode remaining mult window format when mult by mode.

  • Fixed ASK FOR FREQUENCIES with no input from crashing program.
