Deleting REMarks

Post by MartinReid »

Dear Gary (and all watching)

REM stands for REMark and any text after it will not be executed by the programme. Any textbook and 'teacher' will tell you to include lots of REMarks in you programmes so that in the future you can 'remember' what a particular algorithm or variable in used for.

But when your programme is large these extra characters take up memory space so there is a tendency to leave them out... How many times have I said "no problem I'll remember what this is for!" and months later when trying to add something, it all seems Greek (sorry Νίκος).

So yes in this case, after you have read and understood them, you can leave out all the text after and including all the REM statements.

Sincerely
Martin

Hi Martin, playing with the morse tutor again and on start up it plays There's life Jim.... After it finishes I notice at the bottom
ON Play Txt Dot Next
When I try to navigate to them I don't seem to be able to. I'm using the arrow keys but when I press one I just get the morse starting again.
Any ideas please

-Morse Tutor- Operating Instructions

Post by MartinReid »

Hi Gary.. good to see you getting to grips with -Morse Tutor- When you get the menu.. ON Play Txt Dot Next.. just press the 1st letter either the [ON] key or the key [P], [T], [D] or [N]

To see what each of these option do.. check the bottom of page 6 of the HamLog Program Pack - Operating Instructions - When transmission ends.... for more details. Txt is handy if you think its a bit 'fast' and I'm smiling at what you'll say when to get the [N]ext message..

Good luck
Always sincere
Martin

Can the Psion output audio at all? Maybe by doctoring a PC link cable? If so has this been documented please. My thoughts are that it would be ideal to use the Psion to transmit a WSPR beacon which is a very low power transmitter that puts out a standard message and other radio Amateurs at the far end tell you the location where they have heard you.
The message in morse plays on repeat constantly from your transmitter.

The Psion has a piezo beeper attached to a digital output of the 6303 processor. That is used to generate tones and key clicks. If you unsoldered the wires to the beeper or soldered wires on to the pads that connect with springs to the beeper then you'd have an output that can generate audio tones.
Or you could build a top slot device that has a sound generator on it and get better audio. You'd have to write some code to drive that, though, in 6303 assembler or maybe OPL.

Thanks for the reply Andrew, I think the top slot solution would be ideal but unfortunately I do not have the skills for such a venture ha ha.
The idea came from seeing someone use an ipad nano to send the morse beacon message : of course people use Raspberry Pi zeros etc for more elaborate solutions.
I just thought, that the Psion would be a very low powered solution if it was easy enough.

I think the beeper output should be OK for morse, and you can generate tones in OPL with the BEEP command. Worth a try, I'd have thought.
