This revision has the ability to use 'meta-characters' in the 'W' command. Previous versions only allowed meta-characters to be used in the Morse Memory feature. This new feature allows a user to connect their XG3 to a PC via the XG3 Utility and create multiple command sequences using the 'Command Tester' Utility page. Please refer to the XG3 Product Manual for more information regarding Morse meta-characters.
Revision 1.19 February 6, 2017
• The serial command ‘W’ can now interpret the same meta-characters that the Morse memory (WM) command utilizes. This allows the XG3 Utility’s Command Tester to invoke a variety of complex macros using the programmable buttons in the Utility. Macros executed via the ‘W’ command can contain up to 93 characters.
