But isn't that exactly what you're doing in the Sprint? The only thing that changes is if your call gets sent at the beginning of the QSO or at the end ... depending on if you answer a call or someone calls you.

Just set up your F keys like this:

F1 = CQ
F2 = tu # name QTH
F3 = R
F4 = your call

And use "Sprint Logic", and you avoid all this

You never have to think about hitting F2 or F7 or sending "R" with the paddles! Use "Sprint Logic" and let the program figure it out for you. I've never had NA send the wrong "format" in a Sprint. Practice with it before this weekend, I'm sure you'll find it much easier to use that way.
