Feedback from the "Roadmap"

I noticed that CWX (Keyboard driven CW) is schedule far to the future. My main need is not that SmartSDR offer a keyboard driven CW sending capability, but that they provide a simple access via a Virtual Port, probably the SAME port defined as PTT, perhaps PTT using RTS and CW Key-down using the other line. There are plenty of third party logging and contesting programs out there that can send CW through the COM port if we have a simple pass-through. I hope this can be implemented sooner than CWX is scheduled. Most of the rest of the roadmap looks very good to me. As much as I want it all right now, I am content that some things have to wait for a later release. As others have said... Christmas throughout the year! I will get to unwrap a new rig several times a year for a few years to come!

                  I think I recall you mentioned that you use N3FJP for logging.  I recently was able
    to get keying by the N3FJP winkey emulator to the Flex 6000 via N4PY Pegasus Plus
    software.  There seem to be winkey emulators in some of their contest loggers too, but
    I haven't checked them out yet.  If you don't have N4PY's latest version, you can get a
    trial version to see if it works for you.  I also got N1MM and N1MM plus to work using
    the winkey emulators in them.  I am only hours old with this, so there is a little bit of
    trimming and persuading yet to be done.  However, it looks like this can be made to work.

    Great! I haven't spent much time with it yet. I would like to figure out both the N1MM+ interface and the N3FJP interface as soon as I have time. I use n1mm for contesting and n3fjp for hunting DX and W1AW/p operations. I would love to be able to do it without changing focus between programs.
