Thanks for making the CQ's as one and not displaying every single CQ in the Last Heard CQ window, really cleans up the display. Of course anyone wanting to see all the CQ's can easily view them from the Logs Last Heard. And the Ping function is a nice addition.

I have noticed many stations using 2300Hz mode for calling CQ. For keyboard chats 2300Hz is way overkill and takes up three 500Hz slots in the passband. Is 2300Hz really needed for chats? Of course for file transfer 2300 will be quicker, but again you will be potentially QRM'ing more than one 500Hz QSO. So maybe we need to establish some QSY freqs to use 2300Hz so as not to QRM other VarAC 500Hz users??

When you create your Tags for sending your logbook info remember that you can not have a space before the : if you do it will not recognize the Tag you are formatting. Although it does not hurt, there is no need for a space after the : either. e.g. <NAME:Gary><LOC:FM15qd>

Now that 2.7.2 is fully out let's leverage the cool feature of being able to populate info into the log. I make sure I send the other station my info for their log, either as a Canned message or in my Welcome message by inserting the tags: <NAME:Gary><LOC:FM15qd><QTH:North Carolina>

I have been running very tight 500Hz receive filters and for the most part they have been working great. However I realized that some stations are off my freq by 50-80Hz and the link becomes a problem as they are now getting one side of the spectrum cut-off. For stations that are off that far I have to run 600Hz filters. Most stations I work have an AFC correction of no more than 2Hz but there have been a few stations that are in the 50-80Hz range on the AFC meter. 500Hz filter: 600Hz filter:

QSY Protocols suggestions. Now that we are getting so many new VarAC users and 14.105MHz is starting to get very busy, I think it is time to consider some QSY Protocols. In my QRG list I have in addition 14.105.750 and 14.104.250 which is a QSY of Up .750MHz and Down .750MHz. This gives us 3 VARA channels within a single VARA 2300Hz channel of 300-2700Hz. After an initial connection on 14.105MHz and if the QSO is going to be longer than a few minutes maybe consider a QSY Up or Down? Thoughts?

Need to establish one that works with all the ITU regions. For the most part we would need to stick with 500Hz only.

Much like in VARA can you incorporate a way that the ini file can save the position of the VarAC window on the desktop. In the VARA ini file the settings are: [Position] Top Position=17505 Left Position=18810

It would be very cool to have integration to PSKReporter.info so that the Beacons and CQ's could be leveraged to map propagation paths.
