The weather has been fine which is not that common an occurrence in these parts, so it is particularly frustrating to be kept indoors. I hate being confined to bed as I get bored very quickly. Fortunately it is not a complete waste of time because I have a laptop bed rest something like the one shown on the left, so I can at least use a computer and go on the Internet. I can access the shack computer using Remote Desktop and work datamodes if I want. But instead of that I decided to use the time to update all the KComm online documentation and make a public release of KComm 1.6, my Elecraft K2 and K3 logging program.
It has been over six months since I released the last version, so I have somewhat lost track of all the changes. The main changes I can think of are:
- Can now use Fldigi as a datamodes engine, controlled through KComm user interface;
- Can use MRP40 Morse decoder;
- Built-in support to use Griffin PowerMate USB knob;
- Can now send spots from DX Cluster client;
- Now supports JUMA TRX2 native command protocol;
- Can now import data to log in ADIF format;
- Window size now a netbook-friendly 600px height;
- Numerous bug-fixes and small changes.
