Operating Modes

SkookumLogger supports three operating modes:

The 1T2R operating mode (sometimes denoted SO2V) typically uses a transceiver with a sub-receiver. The 2T2R operating mode (sometimes denoted SO2R) uses two transceivers. In the single radio modes, SkookumLogger supports running and search-and-pounce with separate QSO entry boxes labeled  Run  and  Pounce . In the 2T2R mode, the entry boxes are labeled  Radio 1  and  Radio 2 . Special behaviors are supported within each of the three operating modes, with details depending on both the operating mode and the active entry box.

In all operating modes you need to understand  keyboard focus  and  transmit focus  and how they relate to the two QSO entry boxes. A QSO entry box that “has keyboard focus” accepts and processes typing into one of the text entry fields within the entry box. In single radio operating modes, the QSO entry box that “has transmit focus” tracks radio frequency and radio mode and so determines where you are transmitting. When you change transmit focus from one entry box to the other, the radio is changed to the frequency and mode of the newly-focused QSO box. In 2T2R, the QSO entry box that “has transmit focus” determines which radio transmits when you send a message. 

Note that you cannot, with SkookumLogger, transmit at the same time with both radios in the 2T2R operating mode.

SkookumLogger converts VFO and RIT/XIT offset frequency information from the radio into  main receive frequency transmit frequency , and, if the radio has a sub-receiver,  sub receive frequency . The main receive frequency is displayed in the top row of information in each QSO entry box, followed by the offset from the main receive frequency to the transmit frequency. The offset is positive when the transmit frequency is above the main receive frequency.

Choose your operating mode in  OpMode  preferences.
