Information and Warning lines

There are three information lines (a "warning" line and two "information" lines) below the log lines.

Other information, such as microHAM device firmware info, will also be shown in one of the lines.
Other useful information regarding multipliers, spots, and program actions may be shown in one of the lines.
Since cluster traffic can be massive during a major contest there is an option to disable cluster spot warnings.

There is also a "status" line in the lower border (the grey area on the bottom of the above screenshot) where
other useful information will be shown.

If a station in a QSO line is a multiplier on another band that information will be shown in a warning line.

Important: Holding down CTRL while the program is starting will give you the option to not restore the previous layout and log file.

Callsign entry is made into the main window to the right of the time. The red block cursor
denotes the active log field.

The menu option Options|Log|Show cursor in entry line without focus will enable a
shadow cursor in the unselected entry field when more than one radio is used.

Right-clicking the main window background will also bring forward the Options|Log menu.

Use the spacebar to move between relevant entry fields. Use the TAB key to move between all entry fields.

The up and down arrow keys will move between entry lines and in the log.

For more details on keyboard shortcuts and entry line/log navigation, see keyboard functions.
