Winkey support in Tucnak

This page is intendended to be a fast add on for the user manual, native Winkey support is still very experimental (v2.18) and may not work for you, but may work for someone else but me :-)

Due the lag of a working sample, Lada could only add a "blind" implemation of the Winkey command set (tnx for that!), so don't blame him for any problems. --Dl5ybz 13:04, 29 October 2008 (CET)

Getting started

  • Tucnak V2.18 or later
  • a Winkey device with USB port ( Winkey2 keyer from "Funkamateur" / USB has been tested to work ok.. at my (==DL5YBZ) private setup)

Programm Settings

  • Enter the Setup -> CW keying menue
