Hi Paul,

Thanks for the reply. 

Does the leading 'T' or '0' command work for you as well?

I can only get a 'T' for the leading Zero.

This is all after reading the comments on contesting reflector after the ARRL 
10M contest, where the use of shortened numbers seems to be depreciated big 

BTW now using the SCP and ESM functions all the time after your talk at the 
RSGB convention. Great!

There does seem to be a problem with 1 and A, in
that you can change 1 to A, but not A to 1 - all
using CWZERO.  However, with V17.51 CWZERO seems
to work with toggling between 9 and N (in both

My SD.INI entry reads 019N5
and it seems to work - for serials in exchanges

0 - sends non-leading zeros as ----- (in full)
1 - sends 1 as 1 (not A)
9 - sends 9 as 9 (not N)
N - does not suppress leading zeros
5 - Serial Padding Factor of 5 - greater spacing between serial elements

I need to fix toggling from A to 1 in CWZERO,
but I believe that's all?
