Within a macro, a word enclose by angle brackets, like <start> denotes a command. Some commands, like <start>, initiate an action -- in this case, starting transmission. Other commands, like <mycall>, are referred to as substitution commands because they are replaced -- in this case, with the callsign specified in the station callsign box on the Config window's General tab. A full list of action commands and substitution commands is available via [http://www.dxlabsuite.com/winwarbler/Help/Macros.htm]
