Transceiver-Control


Swisslog's Transceiver control allows you to automatically set the transceiver frequency/mode in the QSO, tune transceiver to a DX station from DX windows/Band Maps, display transceiver's S-Meter/Power Output and some other interesting features. You can configure up to 8 different transceivers and switch between them easily.

This section contains information about:

 Select Options Transceiver Interface > Transceiver 1 from the main menu (repeat for transceiver 2-8 if needed). The following dialog is displayed:

When using TCI, all displayed DX messages on every Band Map function will be sent to the Panorama in your SDR. The font color of every DX message in your SDR will match with the background color selected to identify the statistic status (Confirmed, Worked, Need, New or Not Needed). You can disable this feature in the Options menu of every band map.

When using Flex Radio, all displayed DX messages on every Band Map function will be sent to the Panadapter in your SDR. The font color of every DX message in your SDR will match with the background color selected to identify the statistic status (Confirmed, Worked, Need, New or Not Needed). You can disable this feature in the Options menu of every band map/WSJT-X / JTDX band map. These are the recommended Spot settings in Smart SDR:

Information about where in SWISSLOG the TX-Interface is used

The TX-Interface is used in several SWISSLOG functions. This section gives you an overview. You may find more information in the detail descriptions of the functions.

QSO-Entry - Window

The QRG and Mode are automatically read from the TX when you are entering QSOs in real-time mode.

There are some options of the QSO-Entry window which control the behavior:

DX-Window

In the DX Window you can tune the Rig automatically to the QRG of an announced station and back to the previous QRG.

Double click on a spot if you want to tune the transceiver and turn the antenna to the announced DX Station (default option). The same applies to Band Maps.

Transceiver Control Window
