CW Spacing

Scott Davis

Hi All,

First, I want to thank you all for joining the N3FJP_Software_Users group in addition to the N3FJP_Software ("announcement") group.  The other "announcement" group should work well for sending out information, but this group will be especially useful for me to seek ideas and input from you.

As expected, this group is much smaller than the "announcement" group, and I think that is good.  Of course all are welcome, but I think that a smaller core discussion group will work out well.

CW Spacing

I have received some requests for additional control over the CW spacing that my programs generate.  As you know, right now the only control is speed.  I have started with ACLog to add additional spacing control.

This enhancement is not yet available for download or added to the contesting programs.  Retrofitting over 30 programs is a BIG job, so before I do I would love to get some feedback from you on whether the modification as is goes far enough, or if it needs to be fine tuned even further.

Anyone who has ACLog version 2.3 installed, uses the CW feature with ACLog or any of my contesting software and would like to evaluate the modification, please send me an e-mail.  The following will happen:

- I will e-mail you the .exe file.  You will replace the existing file in c:\program files\aclog23 with the file I e-mail.

- Give it a whirl.  Try adjusting the spacing at different speeds and see what you think.  After you have a feel for it then let me know what you think.

As always, all your thoughts, ideas and suggestions are very much appreciated.
