Hi Tom,

Thanks for the new bandmap functions. I've been trying it out with a view to dabbling in CQWW - I'm aware it may not be stable.

I've read the New_Bandmap.txt and don't think it works as described there. If I enter a call, press ctrl-A, I see it added to the bandmap. I tune somewhere else and do the same thing. I can do this several times and see the calls added, but when I repeatedly hit ctrl-g it only picks the most recent spot.

Also, I see that a MEM frequency appears under the normal frequency display, but you don't say how to get the rig back onto that frequency. Simply switching mode back to Log, doesn't do it.

It would be quite useful to be able to arrow up/down the spot list and select the specific spot you want, rather than have to scroll through the lot to get to the one you want. It's a long time since I used CT, but it might be worth studying how that worked. I do remember that you could toggle alt-F4 (or was it F3) to toggle between the selected spot and the current run frequency. That was really useful for continuing to CQ, keep your frequency warm and periodically check back to see if the spot was workable.

BTW, the score or frequency window overlaps the new spot mode info and doesn't look right.

Don't worry, I'm not expecting any response to this before CQWW!

A new prerelease version of TLF is available at:

It fixes some minor problems related to the new bandmap display but the
most work was made on the scoring engine for mults.

As some of you (esp. Martin OK1RR) pointed out, the scoring of multis
was very inconsistent, especially after a restart of tlf or the ':res'
command. The new version should work a lot better now and I hope I did
not introduce some new problems here. Please try it out for the classic
contests support by TLF and also for the WYSIWYG_ONCE and _MULTI modes.

If you observe a wrong scoring please let me know and add the logcfg.dat
and the rules file to your post.

In detail the following changes were made:

- drop old unsupported configuration variable MANY_CALLS (was of no use
   for a long time already)
- lists of possible multipliers can have any number of entries now.
   Comment lines (starting with a '#' in column 0) are allowed.
   Any trailing white space gets stripped, only the relevant part of a
   line is remembered.
   !!! Be aware that not any multiplier scheme is supported at the
   moment. There has some work to be done....
- For WYSIWYG multis the whole comment entry is evaluated as multi.
   Until now it was only the first space delimited word. Please give
   feedback if that is what you need.
- The scoring engine was simplified and reworked. It should now
   correctly count any recorded multipliers during contest as well as
   during a ':res' rescore command or a new start of tlf with some
   entries already in the log.
   !!! If you delete a QSO you have to manually rescore the log (:res).

!!!Please test and give me feedback. Please use it with care in a real
contest. It may contain new bugs!!!

After getting your ok to that changes I will load them up to the github
repo and merge them with the other changes made there.

73, de Tom DL1JBE.
