Messages 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

  • $CORRECT: sends a call correction, if any (see correction)
  • $F1...$F7: sends the message associated with F1 ... F7 function key
  • $INSERT: sends message in the [Ins] key
  • $ISLAND: sends IOTA Reference (i.e. EU001, AF001, ...) (IOTA Contest)
  • $LOGGEDCALL: sends what is typed in the callsign field
  • $MSG1...$MSG12: sends additional CW messages (see Modify additional messages)
  • $MYCALL: sends callsign set in contest configuration
  • $MYNAME: sends operator name, set in contest configuration
  • $PLUS: sends message in the [+] key
  • $QQSLC: sends Quick QSL message based QSOs made (see Intelligent Quick QSL)
  • $QQSLT: sends Quick QSL message based on time passed (see Intelligent Quick QSL)
  • $QSOB4: sends QSOB4 message (see Modify standard messages)
  • $RST: sends report from RST field (normally 5NN)
  • $SERIAL: sends QSO #
  • $STATE: sends State/Province set in contest configuration (Exchange)
  • $YEAR: sends year nr set in contest configuration (i.e. EUHFC, AA)
  • $ZONE: sends zone nr set in contest configuration
  • +: increase speed by 4 wpm
  • -: decrease speed by 4 wpm
  • ^: the halfspace character with 1/2 dot duration

Action

  • $CR: works like hitting [Enter] (log QSO)
  • $GRABSPOT grabs spot on the current frequency
  • $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.
  • $REPEAT: reset the automatic repeat mode interval
  • $SPACEBAR: works like hitting spacebar-key (move cursor to exchange field)
  • $TAB: works like hitting [Tab] (move cursor to next field)

SO2R

  • $ALTERNATECQ (or $ACQ): swaps primary and secondary radios and send CQ on the secondary radio
  • $CQ: same as $ALTERNATECQ but does not swap radios
  • $LATCH: sets latch mode
  • $MK2R: send a specific MK2R command to the microHAM MK2R SO2R box
  • $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 2 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 primary radio
  • $TR2: transmit on secondary radio

WAEDC QTC related

  • $GRNR: sends Group & Number of the received QTC
