How to configure WL CSS for flexradio (or other radios or no radio at all)

Here is screenshots for the process after downloading the demo or an actual licsence. Some hints along the way:

  1. Always start CSS script before WL and close it after WL is closed.
  2. When you start CSS script (after configuring it for your needs) you will se messages in the message window and you can see if it is working.

Final assembly of the new JK2015 stack

It takes 10 000 hours to be best they say….

It is common knowledge among trainers and researchers that it seems to take 10 000 hours to be best in many areas like music, sports etc and I guess CW is closely related to this empiric fact.

So we need to practice. There are many methods on CW  – here is a new one I discovered made by NO5W – “the Pileupnetplayer”. I just started a session on Dayton 2017 and here are the results compared to the best in class (at least those who there ).

At top you see the best player at Dayton an bottom my scores.
