Win-Test 2.17.0 is released
samedi 11 juin 2005

Several new contests, advanced features, and bugfixes were added since the last released version.

Here is the complete release file :

2.17.0 (June 9, 2005)

-  Bugfix : address was not correct for the Tentec Omni VI. Tks F6IFY.

-  Bugfix : DTR handshaking on the serial lines was not working as expected. Tks W0RSR.

-  Bugfix : when an entry was deleted in the secondary radio window with SHIFT+ALT+W, the band was changed by the band of the primary radio. The same operation using SHIFT+F11 was working OK. Fixed. Tks S51TA, and DJ5MW !

-  Added rig Tentec Jupiter. Due to the poor protocol instruction set, there is some limitations :

  • split mode is not supported
  • the VFO A is always shown as active in WT, and WT will only control the VFO A
  • there is no way to control the VFO B from the software.

BTW, you will need a 3-wires cable with CTS and RTS connected at the radio side.


-  Dupe warning message shortened to be compliant with the log large bold font setting. Tnx F5IN.

-  ARI Sezioni Contest added. [This contest is only opened to I stations]

A database for this contest has been built and is downloadable from our usual directory :


Tnx IZ7AUH and IZ2EJU.

-  CW Prosigns : Prosigns are now allowed in CW messages. They are entered as a "&" character, followed by the 2 characters forming the prosign. For example : &BK or &VA, etc... All such prosigns are supported by the internal and the WinKey keyers.

For now, the prosigns are not supported on the W5XD Multi-Keyer.

Tnx IK7JWY. Special tnx to F6IFY and F8CRH for tests.

-  Logs : New option added in the output logs configuration dialog to write the summary file (.SUM extension). Tnx DL1MGB.

-  Text commands : CWABBREV added. Equivalent to CWFULLABBREV. Tnx DL1MGB.

-  Text commands : RPT and NORPT added. Equivalent to REPEAT and NOREPEAT. Tnx DL1MGB.

2.16.0 (June 3, 2005)

-  Added rig FT-757GX II

-  Various bugfixes using the bandmaps for the secondary radio window.

-  Run freq restore (Alt-F4) : A new method has been implemented to save the run freq. In the same time, this function has been extended to the secondary radio in advanced SO2R (with Shift-Alt-F4). Tnx DL6RAI.

-  CQWW WPX : Band changes are now displayed for the M/2 category in the rate window (Alt-R). Tnx DL1MGB

-  Edit keys : Ctrl-A and Ctrl-E mimics the Home and End keys. Tnx DL6RAI.

-  Log browsing : Ctrl-PgUp and Ctrl-PgDown scroll log in 24 hours steps. Tnx DL6RAI.

-  Dupe warning : The received exchange is added to the warning text. Tnx F5IN.

-  IARU Field Day Rgn 1 added : Three flavours of this contest are now available : Generic, DARC and RSGB scorings.

Unfortunatly, there are no well-defined Cabrillo formats for this contest and you must check _carefully_ the overlay category in the log you submit. Check with your national rules or sponsors.

-  Helvetia contest : Cabrillo log format output is now compliant with the required definition. Tnx HB9CZF

-  Zones window (Alt-Z) : The window title bar now includes the worked and the total zones counts. Tnx F5IN

-  Zones window (Alt-Z) : When list permits, you can now display zones in alphabetical order. It applies to both views (current band and all bands). Tnx 5B4WN/C4W.

-  Ctrl + Space grabs spot on the current frequency, if any. Tnx DJ5MW.

-  New message variable : $GRABSPOT, which grabs spot on the current frequency, if any. Can be used in F4 messages for example. Tnx DJ5MW.

-  Web site : Quickstart guides in English and French are updated and available in pdf format. Tnx F1HAR.
