SkookumLogger increments a counter each time you send a CQ message, including customized messages with CQ in their title. The count is displayed in the Score window.
CQ — The basic CQ message. For 1T1R and 1T2R, transmit focus is changed to Run before transmitting if the CQ changes focus to Run option is set in Messages preferences. For 2T2R, transmit focus is toggled before transmitting.
Beacon CQ — Transmits the basic CQ message. When the message ends, the basic CQ message is added to the message queue again after a delay determined by the CW Beacon Delay setting in Messages preferences. When a Beacon CQ message is transmitting and Abort is triggered, beacon CQing is paused. When paused, the CQ message resumes beacon CQing. Sending with the paddle, or typing into a Run QSO entry field when the Typing stops CQ option in Messages preferences is enabled, also pauses beacon CQ. The label Beacon CQ appears in the Log window below the search field and the menu item is checked when beaconing. The label changes to (Beacon CQ) and the checkmark on the menu item changes to “—” when beaconing is paused. In either of these states, choosing the Beacon CQ menu item turns beaconing off.
Alternating CQ (2T2R only) — Transmits the the basic CQ message. When the message ends, the message is added to the message queue again with no delay, and transmit focus is toggled. When an Alternating CQ message is transmitting and the Typing stops CQ option is on and transmit focus matches keyboard focus, typing into a QSO entry field invokes Abort . If keyboard focus is changed while Alternating CQ is transmitting, alternating stops when the CQ ends. Alternating CQ is also started by tapping the F1 (CQ) key with the 2T2R ► Automatically Enable Alternating CQ menu item checked, if both radios are in run mode (no yellow gumdrops).
Copy Pounce to Run + CQ (1T1R and 1T2R) — Copies the frequencies and mode of the Pounce entry box to the Run entry box, changes transmit focus and keyboard focus to Run, then adds the basic CQ message to the message queue.
