I'm sure glad you posted this, Ken, and hope LOTS of "enlightenment" is 

My on-air resolution in the NS sessions has been to grab the paddles, but 
maybe others besides myself would be interested in what you did with the 
Alt or F keys as a workaround 'cuz I think simple keystrokes would be less 
QLF at times than the paddles :-)

Also, is there a way to just send ONLY the Callsign window contents via 
keystroke(s) in the case of a "partial" call AND automatically have "?" 
added?  For example, "W4?" ... for ANY type of contest (where you don't 
want to send a full exchange yet)?  I know corrected callsigns can be 
handled in the exchange window, but this would be very helpful where you 
might have TWO "W4" stations calling at the same time & don't want to enter 
into TWO potential QSO exchances until you at least get more of a callsign 
to work with.

Tnx & 73...
