Message variables

These variables can be used in programming CW messages using the F-keys. Some of these variables do not actually create output but rather perform actions at specific points in time, like the $CR symbol.

CW automation

  • $MYCALL : sends callsign set in contest configuration
  • $SERIAL : sends QSO #
  • $ZONE : sends zone nr set in contest configuration
  • $LOGGEDCALL : send what's typed in callsign field
  • $CORRECT : send a call correction, if any
  • $INSERT and $PLUS : send messages behind INS or + key
  • ^ : the halfspace character with 1/2 dot duration
  • $QSOB4 : send QSOB4 message
  • $F1...$F6 : send the message associated with F1 ... F6 function key
  • $MSG1...$MSG12 : additional CW messages (see Alt - C)


  • $GUESSEXCH (or $GUESSEXCHANGE) : mimics a space bar hit (filling exchange field(s)
  • $GUESSZONE : filling exchange field(s) if possible, but cursor remains in the same edit field.
  • $CR : works like hitting enter-key (log Qso)
  • $SPACEBAR : works like hitting spacebar-key (move cursor to exchange field)
  • $TAB work like hitting tab-key (move cursor to next field)
  • $REPEAT : Reset the automatic repeat mode interval
  • $GRABSPOT: grabs spot on the current frequency


  • $ALTERNATECQ (or $ACQ) : swaps primary and secondary radios and send CQ on the secondary radio
  • $CQ : same as $ALTERNATECQ but does not swap radios
  • $R1R1 : Set audio of Radio 1 to left and right ear
  • $R1R2 : Set audio of Radio 1 to left and audio of radio 2 to right ear
  • $R2R1 : Set audio of Radio 1 to left and audio of radio 1 to right ear
  • $R2R2 : Set audio of Radio 2 to left and right ear
  • $RESET : cancels any manual change made in the audio control
  • $TR1 : Transmit on Radio 1
