RRC-Micro beta release CW issue
« on: 2013-11-15, 02:21:19 »
Love the new interface, all working great except for Macros. When sending longer macros, such as a 3x3 CQ, it only sends a short part of the macro and stops. When typing in the window, all is perfect.

Great that you like the new interface.

I'm now investigating what problems there can be with CW.
The RRC box has an internal buffer of 10 characters for CW.

If characters are sent rapidly (as when using Macros) so that this buffer becomes full the idea
is that the characters that did not fit into the RRC buffer will be buffered in the PC and sent when
there is space in the RRC buffer. This does not seem to work correctly in this version as the PC buffered
characters don't seem to be the correct characters.

Anyway. There are something wrong there and I will work on a solution of that.
Thanks for the info.

Cheers
Roland

Hi Roland,

I got a chance to use the new software this week and have one wish:

I would like to choose between sending CW real-time, or only after hitting the return key. I find it
irritating the way it is now, but probably many like it that way. Maybe you can offer a  check box
or something to allow it to be switched between the two methods.

I also had problems using it with TRX-Manager: it wouldn't always turn the TS-480 on, plus often
the controls didn't work. This doesn't happen with HRD, which I happen to dislike. I am not sure
how you can fix this, but Laurent is very cooperative if you speak to him.

Hahaha.. Mitch.. That's two wishes :)

Anyway. Noted and I'll check what can be done.
Yes he is a great guy and he already has a dongle for testing.
