Worked Gridsquares

Opens (or closes) the gridsquares window. The gridsquares worked are in grey, and the red spots are the stations worked.

Gridsquares Map


A click with the right mouse button allows to copy this window as an image to the clipboard, and to display (or not) some information about this map. At last, the "properties" menu will help you to modify several display parameters with the following dialog:

Gridsquares Map Properties

Worked Zones

Opens (or closes) the worked zones window. The title of this menu item will fit to the chosen contest. The window displays the worked multipliers (in blue) or not (in white) on the current band, and possibly the current mode.

Some examples:

Worked departements window (French REF HF contest)

WindowsZone1.gif

Worked states and provinces window (International ARRL DX contest)

WindowsZone3.gif

Furthermore, with a right click on this window (if the contest is multi-bands and/or multi-modes) you can display the distribution of these multipliers by band (and/or mode).

WAZ zones worked window by band (CQWW DX contest)

WindowsZone2.gif

At last, the same contextual menu allows you to copy all the datas of this window into the clipboard as an image or a text, and directly paste it as a text file or an Excel (TM) or OpenOffice spreadsheet.

Worked DXCC

Opens (or closes) the worked DXCC window. The title of this menu item will change with the contest chosen.

Worked DXCC countries window

If one DXCC country has been worked on a band (possibly a mode), this band will be displayed in blue, otherwise it remains in white. This window is resizable.

A right click on this window allows to display the countries alphabetically sorted (within the same continent), or sorted by number of band/mode worked. More, to easily search for missing countries, the countries worked on all bands can be hidden (clean sweeps).

Last, all the data included in this window can be copied as a text file, and pasted in text or directly in an Excel (TM) or OpenOffice spreadsheet, for a later analysis.

Check Multipliers

Opens (or closes) the checking multipliers window.

Multipliers control window

The deep blue ligne indicates the current QSO. The other lines indicate whether this multiplier has been worked or not on the other bands (and in the other modes if the contest rules permit). If this multiplier has been worked, Win-Test first seeks if the same station has been worked on the band. If not, another station in the same multiplier is displayed.

Furthermore, are specified :

  • The official prefix and the name of the country
  • Short and long path azimuts (Az and Lp)
  • Sunrise and sunset times in this country (SR and SS)

At last, with the contextual menu (right click on the window), you can set the refreshing period of this window : at each keypress in the logging field, or when the space bar is pressed.

Search for Worked Multipliers

Opens (or closes) the window of the worked multipliers.

To quickly verify whether a "zone" multiplier has been worked or not and on which bands, you just need to capture this "zone" in the callsign logging field and open this window (or press shift-F10). All stations worked in this "zone", on each band, will be displayed.

Check Partials

Opens (or closes) the checking partials window.

Checking partials (A2Q captured)

Checking partials (A2Q captured)

If this window is opened, and at least 3 characters captured in the callsign logging field, Win-Test looks in the master database for the callsigns including the mentionned string.

For example, in this upper screen-shot, the captured string is "A2Q". All the callsigns found by Win-Test show this string.

The white callsigns are those not worked yet. The green callsigns were worked, but on another band than the current one. The red callsigns are the dupes (callsigns already worked on the current band).

Check N + 1

Opens (or closes) the N + 1 window.

If this window is opened, and at least 3 characters captured in the callsign logging field, Win-Test looks in the master database for the callsigns differing from the mentionned string by one character.

This command also detects 2-character swap (dyslexia), as well as one missing character.

N + 1 window (Captured call : W5TQ)

If the callsign is not included in the master database, and has not been worked yet, it is considered as an [UNIQUE]. Otherwise, it is displayed in the first position.

N + 1 window (Captured call : K3OK)

The white callsigns are the stations not worked yet. The green ones are those worked on another band than the current one. The red ones are dupes.

Status

Opens (or closes) the status window.

Status Window

This window indicates the status of each station connected to the network. From left to right, are displayed :

  • Station name
  • Current band and mode
  • Station type
  • QSY frequency of the current band and mode
  • Radio 1 frequency
  • Radio 2 frequency
  • Time left before a possible QSY, according to the 10 minutes M/S rule, or "OK" if the station is allowed du make a QSY on another band. Note that this column only appears if the contest specifies this particular rule.

Your own station is displayed in a deep blue background. The active radio of each station has its frequency in red characters.

At last, a double left click on any frequency displayed will tune the current radio on that frequency.

Skeds

Opens (or closes) the skeds window.

Skeds Window

The skeds taken or the passed stations are displayed in this window.

  • A grey background means that the sked is over for more than 10 minutes.
  • A yellow background means that the sked is planned within less than 10 minutes maximum.
  • A green background means that the sked is planned in more than 10 minutes.

A - (minus) sign before the hour means that the sked is over for more than 24 hours. A + (plus) sign before the hour means that the sked is planned in more than 24 hours.

A right click allows to sort the skeds window by time or by band. You can also hide the older skeds, and modify or cancel a sked. In a multi operating configuration, the sked datas are sent across the network.

At last, note that a double left click will tune the current radio on the sked frequency and capture the callsign of the scheduled station in the callsign logging field. You will thus just need to press Return after completing the QSO !

Summary

Opens (or closes) the scoring summary window.

Summary

The displayed number of QSO does not include the dupes. Thus, the QSO column displays only the QSO that have generated points.

A right click allows to copy the scoring summary datas in the clipboard, as an image, or as a text file (in French or in English).

Rate

Opens (or closes) the rate window.

Rate Window

This window is divided in 3 parts :

The upper part displays the rate of the last hour, of the last 10 QSO, and of the last 100 QSO. More, it also displays a moving graph of the rate, computed on the last 15 minutes before the current QSO.

A right click allows to choose on what bands and modes these calculations must be done :

  • All : No filtering is done
  • Current : Filters only QSO done in the mode and band of the current radio
  • According to QSO : Filters only QSO done in the mode and band of the current QSO

You can also choose to display the calculations as :

  • QSO / h : Only based on the number of QSO
  • Points / QSO : Averages the points of the QSO
  • Points QSO / h : Without the multipliers
  • Points / h : Including the multipliers

The graph is calculated on the last 15 minutes. Each bar, thus representing one minute on the air, calculates the moving average rate on the last X minutes, this time being selectable between 5 to 30 minutes. A short period will be selected for a contest with high rates (international HF, such as CQWW or WPX), and a longer one for a contest with slower rates (such as a national HF, or a VHF).

The central part gives general informations about the rate of the contest.

The lower part indicates the current mode and, in CW, the current speed, as well as the activation (or nor) of the automatic CQ repeat mode.

Finally, it is possible - with the same right click - to copy this window as an image in the Windows clipboard.
