You can directly enter the band which you want to QSY to (as far as the contest rules permit !): '''<tt>160</tt>''', '''<tt>80</tt>''', '''<tt>40</tt>''' ... '''<tt>144</tt>''', '''<tt>432</tt>''' .... '''<tt>241G</tt>'''! NB: For the frequencies below 30 MHz, enter the wavelength in meters ('''<tt>80</tt>''' for 3.8 MHz, not 75). For the frequencies above 30 MHz and below 10 GHz, enter the frequency in MHz. Above (and including) 10 GHz, enter '''<tt>10G</tt>''' (or '''<tt>24G</tt>''' etc ....).

Text Commands

Text commands are a comfortable and fast way to access different functions of the Win-Test software. These commands have to be typed right into the callsign field. They will be executed after pressing [Enter]. If the command was executed sucessfully, the command text will be deleted from the callsign field.

Changing Bands or Jumping to a Frequency

You can directly enter the band which you want to QSY to (as far as the contest rules permit!): 160, 80, 40 ... 144, 432 .... 241G.

NB: For the frequencies below 30 MHz, enter the wavelength in meters (80 for 3.8 MHz, not 75). For frequencies above 30 MHz and below 10 GHz, enter the frequency in MHz. Above (and including) 10 GHz, enter 10G (or 24G etc ....). Note from the editor: This may no longer be correct for version 3.x - an option in the Tools menu (Data entry | Priority) may have influence here. TODO: verify behaviour and change this paragraph accordingly.

You can also directly type a frequency (in 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 data.

To get back to your last CQ frequency, press Alt-F4.

Changing Mode

You can also directly change the transmission mode by typing CW, SSB etc. The mode will be switched as soon as you press Enter. Of course, the 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).

List of Text Commands

These text commands allow a fast access functions also available through the Win-Test menu bar.
