Tucnak highlights with red color station callsign, operator callsign. Also suffixes when are two or more characters long. You can click on line to enable/disable yellow highlight of all lines containing these calls. Format of lines must be known for tucnak, at this time it recognize DX cluster, ON4KST chat and WW-convers. Worked stations are turned to dark yellow.

QSOs

QSOs window

Use cursor keys to move cursor. Press ENTER to edit QSO. Press A to see QSOs from all bands.

HF

HF window

This window contains all information needed for HF contest like missing multipliers, rate, band and total score, DXCC info, sunrise/sunset, distance, azimut, calls from master.scp and band map.

For more detailed info look at HF contest setup page.

QRV list

QRV list

Feature for microwaves. Show unworked calls from qrv file. You can sort list by any column to see calls which will give you maximal benefit. WKD column means number of QSOs on current band in latest contests. AcKST show time of last activity of station on ON4KST chat. Text is prefilled by source of information but you can enter anything you want.

You must manually prepare list of stations QRV in this contest. Based on last contests or on other source you have. In 2.27-2.34 is support only for qrv list loading. Save support is since 2.35. Recommended way to add your items before contest is:

Graphics map

Graphics polar map

This polar map shows state boundaries, worked QSOs, antenna directions and many more. Use cursor arrows or drag mouse to move map. Zoom is done using +, - keys or mouse wheel.

It also shows Rain Scatter map.

Scope

Scope window

This window has more view modes, you can switch between they by Space key. On the top image there is "scope" mode.

In older versions there was also FFT waterfall but now I have problems with the FFTW library so it is disabled until I solve this issue.

Scope window with FFT waterfall

Tucnak shows spectrum and waterfall of recorded/played signal. It uses non-linear filtering described by VE3NEA. Space turns scope and FFT modes.
