Would it be possible to broadcast the other stations "callsign only" on Connect (rather than waiting for the QSO to be logged)? Reason for asking is so that logging applications (such as Log4OM) can use this info to do an immediate lookup of that stations information and previous QSOs. I find this info very useful to have at hand when commencing a QSO.
Thankyou for consideration
Hi there. and thank you for submiting this feature request.
I have decided to pass on this. There is no one-size-fits-all solution here. The QRZ.COM integration provides just that, and next version will also populate the QSO LOG section with previously known info upon connection.
So when looking at all of the above - the incentive to add this is not high enough.
I'd like to second this request for reconsideration. It is nice when log4om picks up a contact in progress, as it provides immediate info such as name, location, qrz lookup, stats, worked before, etc. Especially since I always have the logger open on a separate monitor. I do understand that no all loggers handle it well. It could be disabled by default in case it's not compatible with the users' logger. Would really love this feature.
In any case, VarAC is absolutely amazing! I can't even believe how excellent it is, and thanks to the author for creating such beautiful and feature packed software!!!
Decided not to do that.
Every Logger has a different mechanism for that (Some do not have at all).
Besides - I would like to rely on the VarAC internal QSO history to provide you with this information and not an external logger. This is why the history feature exists.
I will add though also name and QTH to the main screen while connected to someone.
Dont forget you have the "HISTORY" button on VarAC to show you all previous info you have with that station.
