Share your QSOs here! Version 0.5 has XIT/RIT and QSK adjustments so those of you who DX with amplifiers should be good to go.

Been having too much fun in the DX test, didn't notice v 0.5 was out.

Have 40 Qs running Peaberry barefoot, mostly 15 meters at about .75 watts out. Worked AK, HI, ZL and lotsa JAs. Also many South Americans and Caribbean. This evening on 40 meters snagged EF8U on Canary Islands! Antenna is yagi @ 25 ft, nothing fancy.

This thing is getting better with each version. I'll have time to try out V 0.5 tomorrow, but I can already tell the AGC/audio is better.

Definite improvement in AGC and audio, although QSK is still smoothest with radio volume slider set low and computer volume set high.

A few items on my wish list:

-- Can RIT and XIT be made to go both directions? Guys who call you off-frequency don't always do it the same way.
-- The band in the display denoting the passband is a bit hard to see, can it be made to contrast with the background a little more?
-- Can the Keyer Spacing dropdown be made sticky? I like to use Character spacing and it always starts as Element spacing.

This little rig sure did play well in the ARRL DX test last weekend. Great QSK let me drop my call in at the right moment, making it possible to ace out several higher powered stations on occasion. Thanks David!

OK, never mind. I just discovered the "+" will change to "-". Keen grasp of the obvious here.
