Re: Working Dupes without ESM

Thanks Rich.

I tracked down the cause and tested the fix.

I just tested this with all 8 possible combinations of CW vs RTTY, ESM vs non-ESM and "Work dupes" checked vs unchecked.

In RTTY with ESM turned off, the ; and Insert keys did not send the exchange, as Lee has reported. With ESM turned on, the exchange was sent. The "Work dupes" setting did not make any difference. 

In CW, regardless of whether ESM was on or off and regardless of the "Work dupes" setting, the ; and Insert keys always sent the exchange.

So, the issue is specific to digital modes with ESM off. With that one particular combination of choices, the ; and Insert keys do not send the exchange to a dupe.

The ; and ‘ keys allow me to work a dupe station.

I think I have figured out the issue.  I have the box checked in Configurer for Function Keys “Work dupes when running”.  I use the semicolon hot key to send the exchange when running and it normally send F5+F2.  The semicolon key does NOT work for me when working a  dupe while running.  If I press the F5 and F2 keys directly it DOES send for a dupe while running.  Something missing in the program??? 


The source of my confusion was that when you hover over that “Work dupes” check box you see the message “If this box is checked, ESM mode will let you work duplicate contacts when running” – thus my conclusion that it was only intended for ESM users.


Please excuse my confusion, but there is an issue using the semicolon hotkey when running and trying to work a dupe.
