A few observations from this weekend and earlier:

1. The SAC rule file could be updated for the next release, since WAE countries (IT9, TA1, etc.) now seem to be counted as multipliers for Scandinavian participants. This is not correct; only DXCC countries count (http://www.sactest.net/blog/rules/).

2. Could the "Check Partial N+1" function be developed further so that typing for example "OH1AC" would show OH1ABC? Typing "OH1AB" shows OH1ABC like it should, but if it's a letter in the middle that is missing, then it doesn't work. It does work in Win-Test, and at least I find it quite useful.

3. Can the handling of transmit focus change + transmitter PTT be made quicker in some way? I use MK2R+ for radio control, and if I for example move from Radio 1 to Radio 2 (either with the $TR2 macro or by moving to the second-radio row in the log window) and want to transmit, it takes up to 0.5s before the transmission actually starts after pressing for example F1. First about 0.25s for focus change (as observed on the MK2R+ LEDs), then another 0.25s before PTT action. When you're in the heat of the game, 0.5s feels like a small eternity ;)

73 & Tnx,
