Non English CW chars in CWX

  • Under Consideration
I am very happy with my 6300 on phone and CW.
I usually make many QSO ́s with my friends on 40m band, sometimes 60min + long ones. I like to send CW by keyboard, using CWX Live mode, but I am limited to English chars. It is very difficult to maintain a QSO using the spanish language, without having to send  our beloved "ñ" letter. ie "España, mañana, soñar and a long etcetera.
Is there any means to send this char from CWX.

Niceto - there currently isn't a way to map non-US keyboards to localized characters for CWX.  So I have changed your post to an Idea topic and I have also added this request to a new feature database for future consideration.  Since this is an Idea post, others that find this request of value should vote up the idea by clicking the blue LIKE button on the top right of this post.

Niceto , Is there an alternative way to write the character in the English alphabet? As an example, the three extra Scandinavian letters that follow"Z" are often written "AE, OE, and AA"

Tim, many thanks for the answer and all your support. This is not a high priority addition. I hope this single letter addition praise, will raise enough interest for the future.
Full Spanish Language support is only a letter away. Maybe not so simple in programming terms, I know.

Stewart, I think there is not an alternative to the "ñ" letter ( --.--) , but we can survive using "n".
