I've never really tried the Sprint Logic function, but I'm not real keen on
keys that send different messages at different times. So I set up my CW
memories as follows:
1. CQ NA K8MR NA
2. DE K8MR NR # JIM OH
3. K8MR NA
5. (Other Guys Call)
6. QSO B4 K8MR NA
7. @ TU NR # JIM OH K8MR
So when I've called a guy and logged his exchange, I hit F7 and its all done.
When a guys answers my CQ, I hit insert as normal.
The F3 memory get used after an exchange when I will get the frequency. But
first pause a second, because often guys will call as soon as the other guy
QSLs. (Or sooner :-< ). When I'm leaving the frequency, and want to QSL, I
send "R" with the paddle. The F3 memory can also be used as an extra short CQ.
In fact in nearly every contest, I set up the F7 key as an S&P Exchange, i.e.
"TU 5NN OH".
