[WriteLog] RTTY Questions

Hi Don & others:  Thanks for your responses.

Regarding the timed CQ - why is it's functionality different for rtty?  The=
 value there for CW is the "wait interval".  Why not have it the same for r=

Regarding the "moving target" callsigns - I could see if they were scrollin=
g at some high rate, but rtty is so slow, this cannot be a real issue.  Plu=
s once the other guy stops sending there aren't a whole lot of characters b=
eing received to scroll his call up the screen - right?  I'm sorry, but I j=
ust found it very disorienting and annoying.  I would at least like the opt=
ion for it not to work that way.

What's the red line signify?
