Using # Commands in CW Messages

CW messages can contain "#" commands that get replaced by callsigns, log fields, etc. For more information on "#" commands see Packet Messages. Here's an example of a CW message using an # command:

CQ CQ CQ de #me #me k

In addition to the # commands available for packet messages there are three additional commands available for CW messages:

#pause value Value in seconds, limit=30
#repeat Restart the message
#file filename Send file

Here's an example of a repeating CQ message:

CQ CQ CQ de #me #me k #pause 3 #repeat

Or, if you had your CQ message stored in a text file:

#file c:\messages\cq.txt #pause 3 #repeat
