CW with IC-7300

Hi,
The IC-7300 and similar new radios can transmit CW just sending to them ASCII characters via the
USB connection.

I made a simple program in GAMBAS3 for transmitting CW in this way, without needing cwdaemon.

If interested you developers might add this way of sending CW in CQRLog.

The source package is at:

Hi!

Just set: preferences/CW interface/interfaces type: Hamlib
Then close preferences with OK
Next use: NewQSo/File/Reload CW interface

And the your 7300 send cw from cqrlog macros and NewQSO/Window/CQ type (use "word mode" there).
Thats all.
Connect your paddle to 7300 rear 6.3mm plug and you have manual keying.
When you change speed at cqrlog it changes in rig.

Hi !
Next version, or if you compile from Petr's GitHub source it is included, Also my test binary have this.

Versions (001) and (002) should be able to implement those in CW macros already, but not in CW type.

For sending SK from macro text write ^SK. For IC7300 the "hat" (^) char joins next 2 characters together. This is passed in macros, but as said 2.3.0(001) and (002) filters the "hat" away in CW type.
