WT 3.21

  1. Set up a network with two PCs, a \"main\" one with radio control via COM port named \"MAIN\", and a second one without any radio control, named \"MULT\"
  2. On MAIN, type 3501 to QSY the radio to 3.501 MHz
  3. On MAIN, type W1AW [Ctrl-Enter] and note W1AW is added to the band map OK
  4. On MAIN, QSY to a new frequency by turning the tuning knob a bit
  5. On MAIN, type K3LR [Ctrl-Enter] and note K3LR is added to the band map OK on the new frequency.
  6. Do all of the following on the MULT PC (the one without rig control enabled)
  7. Type 3527 [Enter] to put the mult radio on 3.527 MHz.
  8. Press Alt-J to display the status window. Note that MULT\'s frequency is properly indicated as (3.527) in parenthesis
  9. Select Window, Radio 1 to view the 80m band map.
  10. Type 80 [Enter] to \"really\" put MULT on 80m (more about that later)
  11. On MULT, type F5MZN [Ctrl-Enter] to put F5MZN in the band map. Note that the spot shows as 3527 in the band map
  12. On MULT, type 3555 [Enter] to move the mult station to a new frequency. Note that the Alt-J Status window is updated
  13. On MULT, type F6FVY [Ctrl-Enter] to put F6FVY in the band map.
  14. Bug: F6FVY is spotted on 3527 MHz (the old frequency, incorrectly replacing the spot for F5MZN)
  15. On MULT, type 80 [Enter]
  16. On MULT, type F6FVY [Ctrl-Enter] again. Now F6FVY is spotted on 3555 MHz

You shouldn\'t have to type \"80 [Enter]\" after every manual QSY such as \"3555 [Enter]\". Somehow band frequency changes entered on the command line are being ignored for spotting purposes, though they are sent around the network OK.

If you define a \"fake\" radio such as a Kenwood on COM1 for the MULT station, then the bug in step 14 goes away, and you don\'t have to type \"80 [Enter]\" to force the band map frequency update.

In Win-Test 4.4, when no radio is defined in Interface Configuration, band changes work OK, but all spots entered via Ctrl-Enter end up on 3500, 21000, etc., instead of the frequency displayed in the Status window.
