Text commands

They must only be captured in the callsign logging field, and validated by pressing the Return or Enter keys.

Changing band or frequency

You can directly capture the band on which you want to be (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 the frequencies above 30 MHz and below 10 GHz, enter the frequency in MHz. Above (and including) 10 GHz, enter 10G (or 24G etc ....).

You can also directly type a frequency (en 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 datas.

Changing mode

You can also directly change the transmission mode by typing CW, SSB etc ... The new mode will be active as soon as the Return (or Enter) key is pressed.

Of course, this 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).
