Digital Voice Recorder:
The DVR command enables direct playback of
your rig's audio "messages". This applies
to rigs with a DVR, and with the facility
to playback messages under external control.
The DVR command toggles between playback of
SD's internal pre-recorded WAV files, if any,
in your SD folder, and pre-recorded voice
messages from your rig's DVR.
This feature depends on having rig control
enabled - in the usual way with the PORTS
comand. SD sends commands to play the
appropriate recordings, as defined in the
parameters in the .SD control file for your
rig. To date, it is implemented and tested
only for the Elecraft K3.
To understand how to implement this feature
for other rigs, follow the example of the
parameters in K3.SD, SD's control file for
the Elecraft K3.
If you are successful with your rig, please
send me a copy of your updated .SD file.
With mode set to SSB, and Caps Lock Off, F1
to F8 plays the corresponding audio file
from your rig. In ESM (Enter Sends Message)
mode, here is what happens -
ESM - RUN Mode
Enter, in an empty callsign field, plays
M1, your CQ recording.
Enter, when the QSO is logged, plays M3,
your "Thanks" recording.
ESM - S&P Mode
Enter, while the exchange field is empty,
plays M2, your "Own Callsign" recording.
NOTE: ESM is toggled with ' (apostrophe),
and RUN/S&P is toggled with ` (the key under
Esc). Esc stops external message playback.
SD now directly supports both sides of the
UBA Contest. SDU is discontinued, and is
no longer supported.
Scoring is hard-coded in SD - the values in
the template files are ignored.
Limitation: On the DX (non-ON) side, SD
tracks European Union country, and Belgian
province mults, but not Belgian prefix
mults. I will add prefix tracking before
the next UBA contest in January 2011.
If you find any bugs, please post the details
to this mailing list.
