I'm just wondering, what good the mode-limits will do for me, if entered in the frequencies table.
My assumption was, that if no TRX-Connection is present, the mode will be picked as a suggestion from the table, though offering the option to overwrite it.
This is apparently not the case, as the setting ist taken from the Preferences - New QSO defaults.
My current understanding is as follows:
The frequencies table specifies the *starting* frequency for the relevant mode. That would make e.g. the following values for 80m in Germany:
- Begin (lower band limit): 3.500
- End (upper band limit): 3.800
- CW: 3.500
- RTTY: 3.570
- SSB: 3.620
So CW would be from 3.500 to 3.570, RTTY from 3.570 to 3.620, and SSB from 3.620 to 3.800 (not accounting form beacons and other digimodes).
If my understanding is correct, the question is, what good does this table to me if filled properly?
Thanks & 73
