As morse code available characters
Keys without any function show no effect, i.e. the error signal described below is not generated.
Use Left/Right Arrow keys to adjust coarsely, and Up/Down Arrow keys to fine tune telegraphy speed. While coarse adjustment the letter "v" is transmitted. Up/Down Arrow keys even take effect when CW transmission is already in progress. The "ENTER" key toggles between speed1 and speed2. When speed2 is active the "Caps-Lock-LED" lights. At the moment you change over from one to the other speed the currently active one is saved first in RAM. For storing the new settings permanently press "F10" before you switch off the device.
PTT control / SPACE key / aborting CW transmission
"DEL" keys the PTT line constantly. Pressing DEL a second time returns to the previous state. Typing the SPACE bar inserts an additional pause between words. "TAB" stops a running CW transmission immediately or terminates all kinds of inputs (e.g. into memories).
Standard message memories
For storing QSO standard messages the keys F1 ... F8 are used. To save a text first press "ESC". The "Sroll Lock LED" signals active programming mode now. At the same time CW speed 2 is switched off to achieve an initial state for programming. After pressing ESC choose the F-key you want to program then write the text and terminate again with "ESC". To program for instance "F1" do the following:
ESC F1 text ESC
All of the characters mentioned above are applicable. The text messages may contain control characters, e.g. to increment the contest number automatically by the character (+) or to transmit 599 with a faster speed (ENTER). Alt-key combinations are valid too. Wrong inputs are indicated by flashing keyboard LEDs.
Four 32 Byte (F1...F4) and four 64 Byte memories (F5...F8) are available.
F1 ... F4 - 32 characters (31 usable)
F5 ... F8 - 64 characters (62 usable)
When pressing an F-key the corresponding memory content is recalled.
