[DXLog.net - Support] A feature wish - "AutoSend"

Well, if I would work a call like JY1 on CW I think I could put my finger on
the ENTER button... HI (I worked JY1 on SSB by the way).
And no, it's not that type of keyboard. I think our keyboard is called the
QWERTY keyboard. I don,t have a picture on that, but I'll see if I can find
one through Google.

I see. I agree, first char of suffix would be better than strict 3rd or
4th character auto-start like Win-Test. Doesn't work for JY1, but I don't
think he ever operated CW. :-)
Didn't know about Swedish keyboard, like this one?
Our ';' is where the "s" key is on that keyboard, underneath the little
finger of right hand when fingers are on the "home row".
