Other present files in the Win-Test directory :

  • wt.ini: Win-Test's initialization file. It contains information that was saved from a previous Win-Test session like callsign, grid locator, address, window positions and color settings. Do not modify - unless you know what you are doing. Starting up wt.exe with the -i or the --alternative-ini parameter allows you to select a specific INI file. This way you can keep templates for different situations and create different desktop icons to use them when needed.
  • cty.dat: DXCC countries file. Updated by AD1C. The latest versions are available at http://www.contest-country-files.com/
  • oblasts.dat: Oblasts equivalence determination file (used in the RDXC contest).
  • cty_cqm.dat: R-100 countries file (used in the CQ M contest).
  • mode.dat: Allocation of CW, SSB, RTTY sections inside amateur bands. Used by Win-Test to gather the mode of the incoming DX spots by frequency. It may be necessary to adapt this file to your needs especially on 40m CW. Note : The use of this file is deprecated since the band plans feature has been introduced.
  • gridsquare_map.bmp and map.dta: Files used by Win-Test to draw the gridsquares and world maps. You cannot edit them.
  • Other files (*.dat): Regional multiplier and equivalence files. Depending on the contest, they allow Win-Test to predict and automatically fill in or check the received report.
