Text Commands

Text commands are a comfortable and fast way to access different functions of the Win-Test software. These commands have to be entered into the callsign field. They will be executed after pressing Enter and the command text will be deleted.

Changing Band 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 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 (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.

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).
