Greetings:
     I feel really embarrassed to ask this question.The scene is the Digipan screen . Go to configure and Fn Macros, then down to call.
The macro is set up as follows:
         Label for F4   "CALL"
         
        < TX>
        < CALL > DE < MY CALL >

   The situation is this; I hear a station either calling CQ or finishing up a QSO.I want to call him AFTER I HAVE LOADED HIS CALL INTO THE MACRO. During i.e. a contest there will be many stations I want to call but I do not want to hit the T/R switch, type out his call and then hit the CALL macro button.There has to be a better way and I am missing it.
Yours Truly

You should have opened with "Using digipan on Windows XP" and there would have been more responses Smiley Smiley Smiley

I stumbled on this little tidbit which might even take care of the issue you are having:
----snip-----
Look for a signal calling CQ.
Double click on his call sign. The call sign should appear in the Call field.
When he stops transmitting, click on the Call button.
Your rig should start transmitting, sending the Call macro and then
turn back to receive.
When he comes back to you, he will likely give you his name and qth.
When you see the name, double click on it and it will go into the
Name field. When you see the QTH, hold the SHIFT key down and
double click on the QTH and it will go into the QTH field. It actually
sends only the first word of the QTH, if you then hold down SHIFT
and click on the second word, it will add it on and so forth.
Enter the RST and notes in the appropriate fields.

It's item 13 on this guide: http://kk7uq.com/html/download/Getting%20Started%20with%20Digipan.pdf
