Messages Variables

These variables can be used in programming CW messages using the F-keys. Some of these variables do not actually create output but rather perform actions at specific points in time, like the $CR symbol.

CW automation


  • $GUESSEXCH (or $GUESSEXCHANGE): mimics a space bar hit (filling exchange field(s)
  • $GUESSZONE: filling exchange field(s) if possible, but cursor remains in the same edit field.
  • $CR: works like hitting [Enter] (log QSO)
  • $SPACEBAR: works like hitting spacebar-key (move cursor to exchange field)
  • $TAB: works like hitting [Tab] (move cursor to next field)
  • $REPEAT: reset the automatic repeat mode interval
  • $GRABSPOT grabs spot on the current frequency


  • $ALTERNATECQ (or $ACQ): swaps primary and secondary radios and send CQ on the secondary radio
  • $CQ: same as $ALTERNATECQ but does not swap radios
  • $R1R1: set audio of Radio 1 to left and right ear
  • $R1R2: set audio of Radio 1 to left and audio of Radio 2 to right ear
  • $R2R1: set audio of Radio 2 to left and audio of Radio 1 to right ear
  • $R2R2: set audio of Radio 2 to left and right ear
  • $RESET: cancels any manual change made in the audio control
  • $TR1: transmit on primary radio
  • $TR2: transmit on secondary radio
