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 ....). This behaviour may depend on the data entry priority setting.

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. You can also just enter the kHz part of the frequency of the current band (Ex: Being on 20m and entering 035.5 will tune your radio on 14035.5). Finally, you can also enter the frequency by omitting the decimal point (CT style) (Ex: 18404 will tune your radio on 1840.4).

Of course, all the Win-Test windows will be updated according to the new frequency, or band, data.

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

Changing Mode

You can directly change the operating mode by typing CW, SSB etc. The mode will be switched as soon as you press Enter.

There are also shortcuts for changing the mode: Ctrl-F1 or Ctrl-F2 will cycle through all the available modes.

Of course, the chosen 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).
