I have 'almost' done that by modifying the KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS and the use of
the \ key.   When I am running w/o a pileup I use the ENTER key and send TU
N1LN TEST (or whatever is correct).  When I have a pileup I use the \ key
(located right over the enter key) that is linked to function 5 key.
Function 5 is programmed in the KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS to link to the \.   In
Function 5 I have %Ltu.  That logs the QSO and sends TU.  

Simple and no mods.

Here is something I'd like to see (after a discussion in the bar tonight)

Having operated from the DX side a few times .....
When you press the + key  Writelog sends the F3 message ( TU <callsign> )

I would like to be able to have the + key send only TU for a selectable
number of QSOs and then after the threshold, send TU <callsign>.

In other words ..... I work x number of stations sending TU after those
QSOs.  Then on the next QSO I send TU K8DD after the QSO is complete.

Personally I would put a max of 4 or 5 on it - I hate it when DX stations
wait more than 4 QSOs before they ID!
