Hi Mike


It is not supported in Writelog . But had been better with RUN A and RUN B
in Multi TWO, that's it! J

This is just a bug in the WPX module.  Sorry, you didn't specify which
contest and I assumed you meant CQWW in which right-clicking on the Band
Changes window gives you the choice.  I see now that WPX has that selection
grayed out.

Seems like an easy change for the program authors to make.  M/S in WPX is no
longer allowed a mult station so the selection of run/mult should assume the
Station A/B scenario of M/2 as I suggested in my earlier reply.

I know this for M/S, but to focus on this makes you nut  to use a paper to
write down each band change..as recommended by others.

But Multi TWO in WPX is 8 times per hour  should be easy to fix. Seems there
aren't any development or chance for improvements..

For M/2 you should be able to assign one station as Run and the other
station as Mult even though they are really peers.  You then get a separate
timer for each station.  Right-click on the Band Changes window to select
the bandchanges per hour option.  Hopefully it is set for the correct number
of band changes per hour for the particular contest.

If you have more than one interlocked radio/computer for each role then
choose the role that is appropriate for each radio.

We used the bandchange timers in CQWW CW.  We noticed that the 10-minute
timers turned red again occasionally when there was a large time gap between
QSOs on the same band.  Usually the remaining time that appeared was less
than a minute.  I seem to recall from earlier experiences that if the clocks
aren't sync'ed between all the computers then the timers have this behavior.
This should not be a problem if it's set for band changes per hour.
