Main Window


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.
