    - Alerts


  * Allow CWID execution at specified position in macro text
  * Modify macro tag <TIMER:nnn> to always start when state changes from Tx to Rx.
  * Add <# comments> tag.  Works same as <COMMENT:comments> tag
  * Correct coding for proper operation of <SKED:..., <TIMER:... and <REPEAT...> tags.
