CT Question

A new feature added sometime in CT Version 8 is, what I call, "automatic
check partial".

As long as the "CHECK PARTIAL" window is open (i.e. by hitting F8), CT
will automatically do a "check partial" as you enter the call - you
don't have to actually hit F8.  

This is fine on my 486, but is a real dog on my XT.

Is there a way to disable the "automatic check partial" ?
The only way I know of is to hit F9 to remove the "CHECK PARTIAL" window.
Of course, the next time I hit F8, the "automatic check partial" is back.

A few folks are heading to EA9 to operate World Wide phone.  I believe the 
call will be EA9UK, QSL via EA9LZ.  Hope to see you on all the bands.  The
current pack of non-EA ops that I can think of at the moment is N6TJ, W6MKB, 

I will be reading email sporadically until I return, so please be patient
awaiting replies.  Hopefully the robot will take care of subscriptions and 
signoffs while I am gone.  If you have trouble with the robot, try sending
a message to CQ-Contest-Request at TGV.COM that says HELP.  See you on the bands.

 This was JARTS 2nd annual contest with little or no s/w for this
 contest so most score totals are incorrect.

Subject: SprINT reminder
Message-ID: <9310221647.AA02188 at cmicro.com>

Just a reminder that the Second Random Internet Sprint contest is tomorrow.
Here are the rules:


Contest period: 00:00:00Z to 02:00:00Z on Sunday October 24 (Saturday local)

Bands: 40 and 20 meters only.

Max power output: 150 watts.

Exchange: Consecutive QSO number (starting with one), name and state
          or province or DXCC country (if outside W/VE).  The name for
          the first QSO is your name.  For every QSO afterwards, the name
          you send is the name you received in the previous QSO.

Call: CQ INT

The standard sprint QSY rule must be followed.  Both callsigns must be
sent during the exchange.  Only one signal at a time please and all QSOs
are to take place on CW.  All information submitted must of been decoded
during the contest.  The use of post contest detection or verification
techniques or systems is not allowed.  Also, do not make round robin
type QSOs.  It will be very easy to spot these with the names floating
around.  A round robin QSO is one where you should QSY, but instead
hang around to work the station who is QSOing the station you gave
the frequency to.

You may work the same station multiple times on a band provided they are
separated by at least 3 other QSOs in both logs.  For example, if WN4KKN
and N6TR had a QSO, they both must work at least three other stations
before they could work each other again.

You must not work the same station or stations using any kind of schedule
or system.  It is the intent of this rule to make sure we don't run out of
stations to work.  It is NOT the intent of this rule for you to change how
you would operate the contest if dupes were not allowed.  If, in the log
checkers opinion, you have not lived up to the intent of this rule, your
log will be disqualified!!

Total score is the number of contacts you make.  The same penalities used
in the sprint contests will apply to busted contacts except that if a QSO
if found to be invalid due to miscopied information, the contact will be
removed from both logs.

Logs must be sent in ASCII format via internet to n6tr at cmicro.com within
72 hours of the end of the contest.

Logs must show the band, time, station worked, number sent, number received,
name received and QTH received for each QSO.  Also, please tell me the
name you start the contest with.  I will assume the name you send is the
name received on your previous QSO, so you don't have to show that.  Please
refrain from using improper names.  There will be a 1000 point deduction for
anyone injecting the contest with the name BEAVIS or BUTTHEAD.

Results will be publised on CQ-CONTEST.

Good luck, tell a friend and HAVE FUN!!
