Just click on the word “Mode” in the log entry screen. Is that not what you need?

Subject: [hamlogger] Request for Mode selection on the fly

 

Hi Bob and all.

In Logger32 currently, for what I know, there is not the possibility to choose and change the Mode "on the fly" if "Mode from radio or DX Spots" or "Mode from BandPlan" is selected.

 

For example if one of "Mode from radio or DX Spots" or "Mode from BandPlan" is selected to change the Mode in the Logbook Entry window is mandatory to disable both options (to do that are needed 4 mouse clicks).

Since there are multiple operating Modes that use only one radio Mode (there is not a relationship 1 to 1 between"Operating Mode" and "Radio Mode") it will be useful that, also if one of "Mode from radio or DX Spots" or "Mode from BandPlan" options is selected, it will possible to change "on the fly" the Mode which then will go to temporarily "overwrite" the Logger32 proposed Mode.

 

For example talking about Digital Modes, generally more "Digital Modes" share the same Radio Mode (USB-D for example).

 

A "real life" example can be a DX Spot (without Comment) of a station that is operating in RTTY on the BandPlan portion that is for PSK31, or a a DX Spot (without Comment) of a station that is operating in RTTY on the BandPlan portion that is for SSB, and so on...

 

What I'm asking is to leave Logger32 as is it now and only add a drop down menu on the "Mode" in the Logbook Entry Window so it's possible quickly to change "on the fly" the Mode (taking the Modes list from what is in the "Setup Band & Modes" table).

 

Hope it can be implemented and hope can help all Logger32 users.

 

Thank you.
