OR --- You could just pick up your new whiz-bang pencil size C-Phone style
transmitter, and just "call" the station .. by voice, of course .. no
typing!  It could alert the station that you want to make a 6ØM contact, and
make those SAME adjustments, in reverse, and  --- VOILA!---    =|;?}   Mark

Hmm, one can imagine coming down the pike within a few years software
upgrades that will allow you to enter your stack height (heights of all the
individual antennas in the stack), maybe even terrain, all the variables
that can be thought of and accounted for, time of day, time of year, A and K
index, where you're trying to work, and the array will adjust as a unit to
optimize everything for it!  Next, interface it with your logging software
and when you type in a callsign prefix, zip-zip, it optimizes quickly for
that individual station!  Or enter the "all Europe" option and, without
further "handling," it keeps optimizing the stack, during the entire
opening, for "all Europe," all "in the background" without interrupting
anything the operator is doing.  Whoa baby!

  What I do is model the STACK for the parameters I am most interested in,
  usually that is for max gain. I then adjust the elements to those physical
  lengths. The software does not know that there is a stack so I must adjust
  each antenna individually. The actual procedure is a bit more complex
  involving several steps but once recorded to memory it requires only a
  push of a button.
