CW Keyer and CW Memories in Transceiver

Only the transceiver internal CW abilities are described here.
Only few transceivers include a CW keyer, which is good controlable via the CAT protocol. Some transceivers may have a CW memory keyer.

Edit Internal CW Memories

image_0041 To edit the memories use: Menu–>Transceiver–>Edit CW memories. This menu item is active only, when the selected trx can support it. This feature is usable independent of the CW interface setting and works over the CAT interface. You can read the memories from the trx at once, and save it back one by one.

TRX CW Memory Play Back

To play back a memory, you have to select Transceiver as CW interface in Preferences–>CW. The trx internal memories will be used only, when there is no usable internal CW keyer. To start the play back use Menu–>CW or press the according F-key. Press Escape to abort.
It is not possible to start a CW memory via software for ICOM!

Use of the TRX internal CW Keyer

image_0042 To use the keyer, you have to select Transceiver as CW interface in Preferences–>CW. Now you can use the RUMlog ‘software’ memories. Go to Preferences–>CW–>Software CW memories to edit. The CW speed is adjustable via Menu–>CW by 2 wpm up or down.
To use the keyboard for CW, open the CW window: Menu–>Window–>CW. When the window has the focus, all entered text will go to the CW keyer. If the option Type ahead is set, you have to push the Space bar or the Enter key first before CW starts.

There is an option provided to print the decoded text (blue) from the K3 or KX3 CW or RTTY decoder.
