I fail to see the point that Karel, OK2FD made about stuffing a call
into the band map after hitting the space bar. What information does
this provide the operator? I think we would all agree that the
purpose of the band map is to: 1) Help you find new stations to work,
or 2) identify stations on the band based on packet or log data.
Automatically stuffing a call from the log screen will not help #1
because you've already found the station (and indeed, your radio is
already there!) and since you already have the station's call, adding
it to the band map won't help #2 either.
The comment from Bill, N4VJ about stuffing the call from the Alternate
Dupe window is perhaps the key. However, unless the user has set the
band map to map the alternate band, automatically adding a callsign
from the alternate band will not cause it to appear in the band map
(because the band map is mapping the main, not alternate band). This
does not invalidate Bill's suggestion, and certainly reflects a
potential usage (CQing on main radio, S&P w/band map on alternate
This stuff is never easy...
