Hi Bob - Thanks for the help - but its fighting me.
Let me try to show you exactly what I am doing and maybe you will see
something I am doing wrong.
W98SE - go to DOS prompt
get to C:\CT>
type in CT and <enter>
CT Version 10.03.002 by K1EA
Enter File Name:
I enter ARDXTEST -KA (ARDXTEST is just a file I am playing with ) and a
space between the filename and -KA
The program starts .
I type in NOWORKDUPE <enter>
then enter a known dupe -
ALT F7 sends QSO B4
INSERT sends the dupe call and QSO B4
This is all OK if running BUT
my understanding is the -KA switch should NOT send my call when I am doing
S&P and I have entered a dupe call and press my call F4 ,and that would be
nice . I do notice the -KA switch is not in his list updated 19 Apr 2007 .
I was not sure the switch is working however - so I tried entering
ARDXTEST -NOW which should go directly to the logging screen but it does not
, it stops at the info screen just as if you had started it normally.
So somehow either I am not doing something right or the -KA switch is gone
Can you tell from what I have shown ?
Incidentally if I try to do like you said and type -KA ARDXTEST it opens a
new program with -KA as -KA.bin . My Grandson (typical 21 year old computer
jock) tells me I always have to do DOS switches after the filename as does
the old CT manual I got when I bought CT years ago.
Thanks - Hank K7HP
