In Schedule a VarAC QSO
With 10meters opening, I have been seeing a lot of FT-8 on 28.074. I have set my IC-7300 (25watts) on 28.105 and beaconing every 30minutes. Current time is 0215hrs PST / 0915z. Will have away "I'm Away" enabled. Looking for any connects and maybe some VM messages from folks. 73 de Steve KB6HOH

Irad, This may have already been answered but can you increase the VM out going file size from 500 to maybe around 1mb or, is that only possible when using the 2300mode. 73 de Steve KB6HOH

Irad, I know you are working on the FONT size issue BUT will that include an adjustable Font size for the Time Clock as well? 73 de Steve KB6HOH

At 1st I thought I had a problem with VarAC not reading the freq when the VFO freq was changed. I then enabled the "Read freq which is defaulted to 2 secs. The program will now track the VFO BUT with a very slow response. I tried timing it with a digital stop watch and got 4secs but that does not include the human factor. Either way a setting of 2secs is way to long. My Comport baud Rate is 115200. 73 de Steve KB6HOH

Irad! Could you add HAMQTH.com as a 2nd option to QRZ.com. HAMQTH is a free Callsign lookup. Would like to see it Automatically populate the Callsign, Name, QTH and LOC fields. 73! de Steve

Irad, could you move the Mode Selection, USB, FM, FM-D away from the Setup screen to the main screen? It is a little cumbersome having to either go back and forth into either the Setup Screen or the Mode selection screen on the Radio to change from FM/USB to FM-D/USB-D while working a Voice and Digital Net like on the IC-9700. Hope that makes sense! 73 de Steve KB6HOH

Not sure what's happening here! When starting up the program either as a Admin or end User I get this popup msg. "Unable to open radio serial port COM4" (Com4 is not being used else where) After clicking on the "OK" button all works just fine. Anybody else experience this? Tnx Steve

Irad, Would like to see a "On Demand Tx" option included in the Beacon Intervals for testing purposes. Also is it possible to have a Right Click option on the "Send Beacon" button to allow quick access to setting the Beacon time intervals or enabling/disabling the "On Demand Beacon Tx"? Next is the LH Peeking?? This one really confused me. Once we figured it out it was the "Last Heard Beacon" list then it made sense. Maybe rename it to "LH Beacon" 73 de Steve KB6HOH

Irad, Is it possible to add a TX File directory like you did for RXing files and or a way to Drag and Drop a file to the Send File command? Also anyway to tag multiple files to be sent from the TX Que? Thanks for all the work you have done! 73 de Steve KB6HOH

I know VARA-FM is not officially supported YET, but I would like to have the option to select either FM or FM-D not only in the IC-9700 but the IC-7300 as well. 73 de Steve KB6HOH
