Serial number

The leading zeros below 100 can be (or not) keyed by Win-Test, depending on the chosen option.

Similarly, there are 5 possible abbreviation levels for the serial numbers :

  • Not abbreviated
  • Half abbreviated : leading zeros are replaced by T.
  • Abbreviated : The 0 and the 9 are shortened in T and N.
  • Pro : The 0, 1, 4, 5 and 9 are shortened to T, A, V, E and N.
  • Custom - there is a custom table. so each number can be shortened to a letter of your choice. Have fun.

This option only affects serial numbers, but never numbers in callsigns.
