I've been trying program keyboard macros or commands for my
Elecraft K3 with no success. I've read a number of posts
on this reflector, the WriteLog documentation, and the K3
documentation for months now but still no joy. I have the
feeling that I'm just missing one little thing.
Except for my attempts to program function keys, WriteLog
and the K3 are quite happy together. For example, I can
click on a spot in WriteLog and the radio tunes correctly.
Similarly, I can spin the tuning knob and the WriteLog
band map tracks correctly.
I can also use the Command Tester feature of the
Elecraft K3 Utility to send commands to the K3 which are
I'm using Windows 7 and my writelog.ini file
The portion of my WriteLog.ini file with the commands is:
These commands are RIT Off and RIT On. I'm using these
for testing as they are very simple and I can see the
RIT LED switch off/on on the K3.
I'm using the Setup->Keyboard Shortcuts... window to link
keyboard functions to the K3 macros, namely:
F01 -> Rig1Command(10)
F02 -> Rig1Command(11)
F03 -> RigKbdCommand(10)
F04 -> RigKbdCommand(11)
but none of these work.My goal is to record my CQ message
on the K3 DVR and program WriteLog to send it but all
I have so far is frustration.
Any ideas out there on what I'm missing?
Thanks & 73,
