Your idea to collect and summarize ideas and proposals is great. But why
only for the big guns? There have been numerous proposals on this reflector
to further improve WriteLog but I do not think I have ever seen any comments
from the program author.
So Scot, would you also be prepared to collect proposals which would enhance
WriteLog in general?
In any case, here are the issues from my previous mails:
1. Enable CW/LSB as alternative to the default CW/USB. This is a set and
forget thing so I don´t mind having to change the WriteLog.ini file.
2. Enable dual VFO operation as a "two radio" set up.
3. Make the/some macro buttons programmable with user written rig control
commands. I like to be able to select filters for example.
4. Make it possible to send CW from more than one com port (but only one at
a time) for multi radio set up.
