Re: DX ALerts

Hey Larry.  Great suggestion.  The only problem is if I’m on 20 and something I need comes on 80 I’ll never hear the alert.  Also if I’m on CW (the current mode) and something comes on SSB (which I rarely use but will if it’s a new one) I won’t hear that alert either.


Unless I don’t understand how your suggestion works.


Anyway thanks for your input.

Hi Pat,


Just use one of the other settings, like “alert if new on current band” and/or “current mode.”

Under Settings I have “New Contact & QSL Alert Option” checked to “Alert When New”.  This has been working great for many years.  Only problem is it rarely goes off any more.  Is there a setting for “New to a Band I haven’t Worked This Country On Before”?
