[WriteLog] Writelog and DXP38
Mon, 13 Nov 2000 18:20:23 -0600
The Auto-CQ feature with a DXP-38 is fixed. I beta tested the fix this
weekend and it does work.
The Sending of QTC's is definitely broke. I played around with it during
the contest but could not get it to work no matter what I did to the buffers.
To me, it should work regardless of whether you have the buffers set or
not. It does on a PK232.
I'm sure Wayne will take care of it before next year's WAE. But it won't
matter to me, I probably won't participate for my own personal reasons.
Nothing to do with WriteLog.
Also in the newest upgrade yet to come out is a fix to the serial number
problem using multiple radios. Don't ask me how he fixed it. I just know I
didn't pay any attention to it and then noticed that all my serial numbers
were correct. I hope I didn't let the cat out of the bag since the next
upgrade has not been announced yet. Other than the DXP-38 not able
to send QTC's, WriteLog worked flawlessly in all other areas.
