We have a new update 9.12C.. Thanks for all that helped us test it to
make sure it was ready before CQ/RJWW RTTY DX Contest. Wayne has tweaked
9.12C to where it is really working.. If you were one of the beta testers
for 9.12C you will need get the new WL912cupg.exe file, it's at the same
address. As I said it's better now than it was when you were testing it..
(I assure you it is..) :-)
Wayne has put two new files at the below address: Be sure to get both.
The second one is a new rtty.dta with quiet a few more calls in it so
the database will detect more calls, without "DE" being in front of a
call. I do urge you to use DE like you always have in the past. Because
WriteLog will detect call not in the database if DE is in front of the
call. After you download rttydta.zip, unzip it and put rtty.dta in your
C:\Ham\Programs file, it will overwrite the old one..
I would like for all of you to send me or Jay WS7I a copy of your DUPE
file after each contest. We will take all the new calls and make new
rtty.dta file with them. We could have updated rtty.dta file before
each contest if time permits.. It's to your benefit to do so, the more
calls in the database the better off we all are.. Everyone that sends a
dupe sheet will get updates... This goes for: WriteLog, WF1B, OH2GI
users as well. We will share this info with everyone that send a dupe
sheet.. You can send you Dupe file to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org or to WS7I
Wayne has also speeded up Supercheck as well. If your using a 200
computer, WOW.. If your using a real fast MMX computer, Holy Shit. :-)
Since there are a ton of Vanity calls you will notice from time to time
call like WB9UHL and all that will Highlight is WB9U. That's because
WB9U is in the database and WB9UHL isn't.. We do have a fix for this
but it's not in 9.12C. We will have it in an future update. Here is how
to get around it for now. When you see only PART of a call highlight,
press CTRL and click on the first letter of the station your are working.
If WB9UHL is the station you are going to working and only WB9U
highlights, if you press CTRL and click on the W in the call sign you
will get WB9UHL to appear in your Call Window.. Remember click on the
FIRST LETTER of the call, for this to work. I have played with it most
of the day and it works real good.. As always, if you SHIFT click on
TOO (599) when you log the contact it will read 599 in you log.. You
can also SHIFT click QWE (123) - RTY (456) in contests that require a
serial number and 123 or 456 will be logged in you log..
WL912cupg.exe will upgrade Ver-9.09 - 9.11 to become 9.12C.. If you have
any problems with downloading let me know...
Wayne is working on some CW/SSB requests that will be out in up coming
See ya in CQ/RJWW RTTY DX Test,
