When operating SO2R the contester has two radios, two amplifiers, two sets of antennas, but only one computer to log all the QSOs. How to tell the program when typing a call that it belongs to radio1 or to radio2 is the question.

Win-Test uses the [Shift] key to signal to what radio the callsign belongs to. This is a clever way for the operator on the fly put callsigns into the primary radio or the secondary radio but it requires re-defining the numbers above the letters in the keyboard and keep pushing the [Shift] key while typing the call to go to the secondary radio.

Another way is to use the [Caps Lock] key. While the [Caps Lock] key is activated whay you type into the keyboard goes to the secondary radio.

This option does not require redefining the number above the letters in the keyboard.
