Lower Case Call Signs

Unread postby AE6JV » Sat 25. Jan 2014, 08:39

I have used RUMped in several contests in the last year and it has performed very well. Thanks Tom. It is a very kind of you to make it available for the ham community.

I used RUMped 3.2.2 during field day last year. When running PSK31 with cocoaModem connected to the RUMped display, I noticed that sometimes the duplicate calls were not being shown in red in that display. The upper case calls were correctly displayed in red, but calls in lower case were not. I worked a couple of dups as a result.

It would also be nice if any character which is invalid in a call sign delimited the call for highlighting purposes.

Cheers - Bill

A quick test shows it is now working. Thanks!

BTW, the version shown by "Get Info" in the finder is still 3.2.7.

I can't confirm that.

I can't reproduce it either. Must have been my mistake. Sorry.
