WinWarbler Macros

WinWarbler Online Help Contents

WinWarbler's two banks of sixteen macros allow you to transmit information with a single mouse click or keystroke. To invoke a macro in the first bank, click on its button, or strike its associated function key (F5 through F12, and Shift-F5 through Shift-F12). To invoke a macro in the second bank, depress and hold the ALT key to display the second bank, and then click the appropriate macro button, or strike its associated function key. Checking the ALT checkbox, located between the 4th and 5th macro buttons, displays the second bank of macros until you uncheck it. You can also switch macro banks using the <macrobank n> command described below.

Using the repeat command described below, a macro can be repeated multiple times with a single mouse click or keystroke, separated by "listening intervals" of specified duration.

WinWarbler also provides 

These dedicated macros can be used to set transceiver parameters, select a macro bank, and/or load a macro bank from a file containing macros appropriate for the mode. They are defined in the lower portion of WinWarbler's macro definition window, described below.

With WinWarbler's Main window active, allowing the mouse cursor to linger over a Macro button for a few seconds will display an explanatory popup showing what would be sent if the associated macro were invoked; substitution commands will be replaced by the substitution text unless that that substitution text is empty, in which case the name of the command enclosed in angle brackets will be displayed. An explanatory popup window will not appear if the show control explanations setting is disabled, or if the macro's Explain box is unchecked in the macro definition window

Macro Definition Window

To modify a macro, depress the Ctrl key while clicking on the macro's associated button or striking its associated function key. WinWarbler will display its macro definition window, which displays two components for each macro: title, and contents. The title is used to label the macro buttons on WinWarbler's main window. The contents determine what is transmitted when the macro is invoked. 

To include a single ampersand in a macro's title, insert a pair of back-to-back ampersands, e.g. R&&B.

To prevent a popup explanation from appearing when the mouse cursor hovers over a macro's button with the Main window active, uncheck its Explain box.

To select the font used to label a macro button, click the Font button.

To set the color of the font used to label a macro button, click the appropriate Set button in the Font Color column, and choose the desired color from the color selection window. If you depress the CTRL key while clicking a Set button, the macro button's font color will be set to black.

To set the color of a macro button's face, click the appropriate Set button in the Button Color column, and choose the desired color from the color selection window. If you depress the CTRL key while clicking a Set button, the macro button's button face color will be set to the standard button face color in the current Windows color scheme.

For macros whose length exceeds that of the macro definition window display, double-clicking in the contents field will invoke a resizable editing dialog.

You can save a macro bank's sixteen macros to a file by clicking the Save button and selecting a destination pathname; if the Save colors box is checked, then font and button colors for each of the macro bank's sixteen macros will also be saved in the file.

You can load a macro bank's sixteen macros from a file by clicking the bank's Load button and selecting a source pathname; if the file contains font and button colors, then the font and button colors of each of the macro bank's sixteen macros will be set to the save colors. The last filename pathname associated with a macro bank is displayed in the Macro Bank panel's caption; if a macro is subsequently modified, this will be noted in the panel's caption. The simple name of the file is displayed in the Main window's Macro panel caption. If you use a text editor to modify the contents of a file into which macros have been saved, do not insert line breaks, as this will prevent WinWarbler from properly loading the file; to insert a line break in a macro use the <enter> substitution command described below.

The PSK startup, RTTY startup, Phone, and CW startup macros are defined in the lower portion of WinWarbler's macro definition window; there's a checkbox associated with each startup macro that determines whether the macro's commands are executed when a switch to its mode occurs.

To insert a line break in a macro, use the <enter> substitution command described below. 

Macro Commands

In a macro's contents, any information not surrounded by a pair of angle brackets is transmitted verbatim in every mode except phone. Valid commands begin and end with an angle bracket; WinWarbler processes such commands in a macro's contents by replacing them as enumerated in the following Substitution table, or by executing an action specified in one of the following Action tables:

Command Substitution 
<n> the character whose ASCII code is n (for 0 <= n < 255); control characters other than <17>, <18>, and <19> will be conveyed to the external modem if in CW mode with keying via the external modem, or if in RTTY mode with the external modem's receive pane active

<loadmacrobank: filename> loads the currently selected macro bank with macros defined in the specified filename located in WinWarbler's scripts folder. If WinWarbler is installed in the folder

c:\program files\winwarbler  

then the command

<loadmacrobank: cw.txt>

will load the current macro bank with macros defined in the file

c:\program files\winwarbler\scripts\cw.txt

notes: 

  1. if no macro bank has been selected by a preceding <macrobank: n>, then macro bank 1 will be loaded

  2. if the specified file was saved with font and button colors, the current macro bank's font and button colors will be set to the colors specified in the file/font>

<lookup>

DXKeeper (if running) is directed to do the following with the station whose callsign is shown in the Call textbox:

  • produce a filtered display showing previous QSOs 

  • perform a callbook lookup

  • record DXCC, Grid, Via, QTH, IOTA, CQ, ITU, State, County, Province, Continent and Country Code information obtained from previous QSOs, found in the selected callbook, or found in the DXCC database 

  • update the Call textbox's caption to indicate the number of previous QSOs -- unless WinWarbler's Contest Mode is enabled and the current QSO duplicates the callsign, band, and mode of a previous QSO, in which case the Call textbox's caption will indicate  Dup!

  • display details of the most recent QSO with this station in the expanded QSO info panel

If DXKeeper isn't running, DXView (if running) is directed to display the location of the station whose callsign is shown in the Call textbox, and  Pathfinder (if running) is directed to perform a QSL route search for that callsign.

The <say: message>, <saycallsign>, and <saytxserial> commands require that you populate WinWarbler's Phone folder with the following files:

The <saycallsignphonetics>  and <saytransmitpanephonetics> commands requires that you populate WinWarbler's Phone folder with the files A_phonetic.wav, B_phonetic.wav, ... Z_phonetic.wav - each containing a recording of the spoken letter's phonetic (e.g. Alpha, Bravo, ...Zulu).

The <saytransmitpanephonetics> command may also require that you populate WinWarbler's Phone folder with the file  space.wav , which is played when a space character is encountered.

Unless you're using VOX to initiate transmission, commands like <play: filename> and <say: message> should be preceded by a <start> and followed by a <stop>, e.g. 

<start><play: cq.wav><stop>

For applications using frequencies outside of the amateur radio bands,  there exists a version of WinWarbler that allows you to schedule the execution of macro sequences, where a macro sequence specifies the execution of one, two, or three macros. Each of the macros within a sequence can be repeated up to three times, and the entire sequence can be repeated up to three times at specified intervals. If you have need for this functionality, contact AA6YQ at aa6yq@ambersoft.com .
