They must only be captured in the callsign logging field, and validated by pressing
the Return or Enter keys.
You can also directly type a frequency (en kHz) : for example 14234.4, 1843, 144300 etc ... If a radio is connected to your computer, it will jump to the desired frequency. Of course, all the Win-Test windows will be updated regarding to the new frequency or band datas.
Of course, this mode will have to be compatible with the rules of the chosen contest. Otherwise Win-Test will ignore this command (error detection in the field).
For the commands MIC, NOMIC, MICWHENPLAY et NOMICWHENPLAY, note that :
- The settings are effective only in the phone mode
- When you switch to a non-phone mode (in a mixt mode contest for example), the microphone input is closed. As well, when you quit WinTest, the microphone input is closed
- The settings will not immediatly be active if the voice keyer is playing
You can now launch an external program by typing its name in the callsign field and the Ctrl-X key (stands for eXecute) to launch
it. This is useful for example if you need to run a batch file while running Win-Test. This external program must be located in
the Win-Test directory, or in a directory included the Windows system path.
A practical application of this new feature is to use a batch file to change sound files when you change op in a multi-op environment.
Another application could be to launch an on-demand backup on a volume different from the one specified in the backup command integrated in Win-Test.
