The recent thread about using keyboard shortcut commands to navigate through
the spots in the Band Map got me to thinking a bit. Always a dangerous
thing for someone my age to engage in! One of the main purposes of this
reflector is to exchange information and tips about WriteLog in addition to
help solving the occasional problem that always crops up somewhere. From
some of the direct emails I got in response to setting up Band Map
navigation shortcuts I 'm wondering if there might be some other neat
WriteLog abilities that few are aware of, much less use on a regular basis?
One of the first things that popped into my mind in that regard is ESM,
Enter Sends Message.
I frequently see on some other reflectors comments from N1MM users who are
greatly impressed with the ESM functions in that software. Some have gone
so far as to indicate it is the main reason they use N1MM. How many
WriteLog users are aware that it also has ESM capability? How many would
use this function if they know it's there? How many know its there, but
have no idea how to set it up and use it? Interesting questions, but no way
to come up with an answer.
So, in case someone out there in the WriteLog universe might want to think
about using ESM I have updated a file I created some months back at the
behest of a couple of AK hams who were interested in the concept. After
updating a few topics I have saved the document as a pdf file that can be
downloaded from the link below. If anyone follows through with this set of
instructions and actually tries out ESM in a contest I'd be interested in
hearing your thoughts.
