Between the RTTY WPX and yesterday's RTTY NAQP, I switched main radios from an IC-765 to a FT-1000MP.
But a problem with BFO range on my K2 means I must use RTTY-REV (same as CW-REV) mode if I want to use narrow filters - when I do this, TR thinks the rig is in CW-REV mode (not sure if the MP is the same, but with TR it thinks CW when radio is saying RTTY).
I have not looked at what is going across the RS-232 line, but I think TR is getting it wrong.
More a hint than a bug: don't redefine F10 in RTTY mode. Playing around before the contest, I put a long CQ in CQ memory F10. It transmitted OK - but it also transmitted at the beginning of every other F-key message. I need to experiment more with this.
Here is part of my logcfg.dat for BARTG:
cq memory f1 = cq cq test cq cq test DE \ \ \ \ kkk
CQ MEMORY F2 = CQ cq cq test cq cq cq test de \ \ \ \ kkk
CQ MEMORY F3 = @ 599 # # # DE \ kkk
CQ MEMORY F4 = QRZ QRZ TEST DE \ \ KKK
CQ MEMORY F5 = # # #
CQ MEMORY F6 =
CQ MEMORY F7 = <03>r<0D>tc<0D>
CQ MEMORY F8 = AGN AGN AGN
CQ MEMORY F9 = ???
ex memory f3 = @ de \ 599 # # # kkk
ex memory f4 = qrz qrz test de \ \ kkk
EX MEMORY F5 = nr? nr? nr?
EX MEMORY F6 = QRZ QRZ TEST DE \ \ KKK
EX MEMORY F7 = <03>r<0D>tc<0D>
EX MEMORY F8 = AGN AGN AGN
EX MEMORY F9 = ???
CQ EXCHANGE = @ DE \ 599 # # # KKK
S&P EXCHANGE = @ de \ 599 # # # kkk
REPEAT S&P EXCHANGE = @ @ de \ 599 # # # kkk
QSL MESSAGE = @ rrr 73 qrz test de \ \ kkk
ex menu = F1-DE+Cl F2-+ F3-rptex F4-QRZ? F5-nr/nr? F6-QRZ? F7-Abort F8-AGN F9-? Alt-AskForHis
CQ menu = F1/2-CQ F3-rptex F4-QRZ? F5-nr/nr? F6- F7-Abort F8-AGN F9-? Alt-AskForHis
With this arrangement, I sometimes use F10 in order to say something to someone
(like "Hi Marjan" when S56A calls) or in feeble attempts of duplicating the TAIL END
KEY functionality by hitting ESC, F10 tu nw tail_end_call, ESC, type call, hit
ENTER... anybody get their rate meter much over 90 with TR in RTTY yet? Being
able to respond to other callers that printed after a CQ is about the only area where
I can see I'm being held up by the program - another smaller improvement could be
from being able to use the different QSL MESSAGEs so a shorter one can be used
when rates are high or conditions so good that shorter messages can be used.
