The status window is very important in a multi-op situation. It shows the frequencies of all stations on the network.

Understanding the status window


There is various important information shown in the status window:

  • STATION shows the unique identifier for each station (set when you create/open a log)
  • BAND is a 'at a glance' display of the frequency/mode of the station (e.g. 20 CW)
  • TYPE is the station type - i.e. Run, Support, Mult 1, Mult 2 etc... (Set by going to the Commands->Station type menu option)
  • QSY FREQ is the frequency set for passing multipliers
  • RADIO 1 is the current frequency of the radio
  • QSY informs you whether a QSY is acceptable or whether you must stay on the current band (e.g. 10-minute rule)

Observing the 10-minute rule


Hiding unnecessary information in the status window

You can hide unncessary information in the status window (e.g. 'RADIO 2' etc) by right-clicking in the status window and going to 'Display Options'. You can choose whether to show support stations in the status window list and also whether to show or hide the RADIO 2 frequency (often not necessary).
