[TRLog] How do I program DVP messages?
Sun, 11 Nov 2001 13:49:06 -0500 (EST)
I have read the TR Manual about how to program DVP messages. I don't
quite understand it, and I won't actually have a DVP to play with
until Friday, the day before SSB Sweepstakes.
Here is an excerpt from the manual, interposed with my questions.
>To program the voice messages, put yourself in the SSB mode and
>press ALT-P. The function key and other messages will be shown

Great. This even works without a DVP installed!
>You can select the file you want to edit by pressing the
>appropriate key, then by using ALT-W to write to the file,
Not Great. How does this work? Does recording start when I
hit the appropriate key? Do I terminate recording with ALT-W
or ESC or something else? If I don't terminate with ALT-W, when
do I press it to write to the file.
>and ALT-R to review the contents of the memory. [...]
OK, this plays it back without keying the rig. I understood
that. So, it sounds like I don't start recording with pressing the key,
since I have to select the memory before playback?!?!?
>There is a short cut to program either the CQ or Exchange function

OK, this sounds "just like CT." :-) Do I select whether I'm
programming a CQ or Exchange function key memory by whether I'm
in CQ or S&P mode, or what? Or are those memories seperate,
so that there are only ten messages available?
Thanks in advance for any help.
