<< Excuse me,
hasn't the Ctrl-U packet spot window been there ever since, long before the
bandmap was introduced?
Use Up and Down Arrows and Tab to move, Right or Left Arrow to send spot to
or left radio.
Not at all. The PACKET ANNOUNCE window in CT is actually one of CT's most
important and useful features, and is a powerful tool for rapidly sorting out
and rapidly QSY'ing to packet multipliers. The PACKET ANNOUNCE window in CT
sorts packet spots, and can be toggled to show MULTS THIS BAND, MULTS ALL
BANDS, QSOS THIS BAND, QSO'S ALL BANDS. It will not display dupes.
In contrast to ctrl-U function, the CT ANNOUNCE Window retains all spots for
at least the past 30 minutes (you access them by scrolling up or down),
whereas the ctrl-U function simply randomly lists only the last 10 - 15 or so
spots, and these are not sorted. By contrast, Tr's ctrl-U function it it's
present iteration is really not very useful. The right and left arrow radio
assign feature, in particular, is confusing.
