  • Space - Preferred character to move sequentially through Entry Window fields .
    • Jumps from callsign to Exchange field or vice versa.
    • Other fields' default values will be filled in
    • If there is a call on the callsign frame and if the callsign field is empty, the call from the frame will be placed in the callsign textbox.
  • Alt+Enter - Send End of QSO message key and log the contact. In ESM it just logs the contact (nothing sent).

Autosend will start sending the callsign before you have finished copying a full callsign. i.e. starting after a certain number of characters has been typed AFTER the last number in the callsign. The minimum threshold is 1. Zero will turn off the feature. Only when in RUN mode.
    • The Autosend rules are:
      • Find the first letter in the call
      • Find the last number after the first letter
      • Find the Nth letter after step 2
      • For example: Threshold set to 2
        • W4WYP would start sending at Y
        • S57AD would start sending at D
        • KH6/WA4WYP would start sending at Y (using the "/" rule as well)
        • WA4WYP/4 would start at Y (/4 will not be looked at)
      • WYP, WWYP and WAWYP do not meet the criteria for autosend to begin.
      • Prefixes like KH6/ are ignored and do not themselves trigger the autosend threshold.

7. Message Key Assignments


There are two sets of messages stored for F1 through F12, one for Running mode and one for Search and Pounce mode. However, you can send the message from the opposite mode by pressing Shift+Fx. The assignments below apply to both modes.

Below is a table of the function keys with their associated default messages. Note that the CQ key always switches the program to Running mode regardless of which mode it was in at the time. All of the keys named in the table are used by ESM. The His Call key, Exchange key and End of QSO key are called up by logging key shortcuts (Insert or ; key and' key) regardless of whether the Enter Sends Messages (ESM) feature is used or not. The function keys can be remapped to others on the Function Keys tab in the Configurer, but be very careful in doing so, because if you do, you may disrupt the functioning of the Enter Sends Messages (ESM) feature.

Default Function Keys
F1 CQ key F2 Exchange key F3 End of QSO Key F4 My Call Key
F5 His Call Key F6 QSO B4 Key F7
-
F8 Again Key
F9
-
F10
-
F11

  • Esc - Stop sending CW or wav. file.
  • Ctrl+R - Set CQ repeat time in seconds or milliseconds (Example: 1.8 or 1800)
  • Alt+R - Toggles repeat mode. Hit Esc or begin entering a callsign to stop repeat temporarily
  • Shift+Fx - Sends the contents of the function key definition for the opposite mode. If you are in Run mode and press Shift+Fx, the program sends S&P Fx. The reverse is also true.
  • Ctrl+Shift+Fx - Record SSB message for the selected function key. Pressing Ctrl+Shift+Fx again stops the recording. Fx can be F1 to F12 in either the Run or S&P lists of function key definitions. Make sure that the program is in the correct mode (either Run or S&P), and that you have filled in filenames in rows Filenames must be entered in at least the first 12 function key slots (right-click on the message buttons in the Entry window to edit); if names are only in the first 12, then the program will play those messages when the corresponding function keys are pressed, regardless of whether you are in Run or S&P mode.
  • Ctrl+Alt+Fx - Record external DVK memories 1 to 4, only on the W9XT card or other DVKs that emulate it
