# CWCOM CONFIGURATION SETTINGS

SUGGESTIONS BY VK2IAU , TRY THESE AS A START


1. CONFIGURATIONS

#    Morse = Incoming Morse =    SET AT 100%


#    Translation    =   IF YOU WANT TO RECEIVE AN INSTANT BLOCK OF TEXT ON YOUR SCREEN ( WITHOUT SOUND ) THEN REMOVE TICK FROM Incoming Text = VERY HANDY FOR BLOCK TEXT MESSAGE


SENDING

#      Morse Key    =    DOT IN Manual , DOT IN     Looping Method

#      Transmit      =    SET AND LOCK   =   IF YOUR TX SPEED DOES NOT MATCH YOUR SETTING THEN YOUR SCREEN TEXT WILL NOT SHOW THE LETTERS YOU SENT


SENDING MORSE CODE

1.        USE A CHEAP PLASTIC KEYER , NICE , BUT LOCK IT DOWN SOMEHOW OR YOUR HAND WILL CHASE IT ALL OVER THE ROOM


2.     VISIT YOUR LOCAL AMATEUR RADIO CLUB , SOMEONE MAY EVEN GIVE YOU ONE


3.      USE CWCOM INBUILT KEYING BY EITHER THE MOUSE , KEYBOARD TYPING , KEYBOARD DOWN ARROW , OR USE A JOYSTICK


4.       MAKE YOUR OWN ( HOME BREW ) KEY , SEE MY ( VK2IAU John ) KEYER BELOW THAT I USE WITH CWCOM . MADE FROM 4 HACKSAW BLADES WITH A PL2303 CONVERTOR BETWEEN THE KEYER AND THE P.C.


5.    WITH SOME COMPUTERS THE PL2303 WILL NOT WORK SO I DEVISED A METHOD OF USING 2 MOUSES ( ? MICE ? ) TO ALLOW ME TO KEY MORSE INTO CWCOM ( SEE BELOW FOR THE VK2IAU MOUSE KEYER )



THE 3 PHOTOS BELOW SHOW SHOW 2 MOUSE COMBINING TO ALLOW A SIMPLE METHOD OF KEYING MORSE SOUND INTO CWCOM


PHOTO SHOWING 2 MOUSE , BOTH CONNECTED USB TO P.C.

OBTAINING A USB TO SERIAL converter PL2303

I PURCHASED MINE LOCALLY FROM AN ELECTRONICS RETAIL STORE , CAME IN A SEALED PLASTIC ENVELOPE WITH A SMALL DISC , I HAVE FOUIND SOME COMPUTERS NEED THE DISC , OTHERS NOT , KEEP IT ANYWAY .

?? WEB SEAERCH : USB TO SERIAL converter PL2303


Morse Mail      =   NOW NOT ACTIVE SOUND


#    YOU MAY NOT GET SOUND FROM CWCOM IF THE SETTINGS ARE NOT RIGHT , IF NO or QUIET SOUND THEN TRY

Tx Pitch      =     805

Rx Pitch      =     825


Morse Library Editor ( for making shortcut keys , NO SHORTCUT KEYS ON A RADIO SO I LIMIT THESE , but your choice .

BELOW : A VERY NICE HOME BREW QSL CARD MADE FOR CHANNEL 100 ( ABOUT 6000 CHANNELS TO GO TO )

CWCOM CAN BE USED OFFLINE TO HEAR YOUR TRANSMITTED CW , IF USING THE KEY or LEFT MOUSE or DOWN ARROW , or JOYSTICK

( LEFT MOUSE = click in the black box top left corner )


IDEAL FOR OFFLINE PRACTICE TO CHECK OUT THE BELLS AND WHISTLES OF CWCOM , OR FOR QUICK PRACTICE BEFORE GOING ON LINE





COMPATIBILTY MODE:

ON ONE OF MY OLDER COMPUTERS I NEED TO RUN CWCOM IN " WINDOWS 7 " ( it will run offline in other modes , sometimes it goes on line but I get tx from channel 1000 as rx on channel 100 , if your CWCOM acts strange try compatibility mode , ? cheaper than buying a new P.C. ?
