Timing the Length of a QSO

In some cases it is useful to be able to track the the exact length of a QSO. The RagChew and Marathon awards, for example, require QSOs that last a minimum amount of time.

At anytime during a QSO, you can click on the underlined "Time:" label in the Log Entry Window to launch a QSO timer. By default, the timer uses the QSO Start Time shown in the Log Entry Window as the basis for computing the length of the QSO as compared to the current time.

The "Stop", "Pause", and "Reset" Push Buttons operate pretty much the same as you would expect on a Stop Watch.

Pressing "Stop" at the time the QSO ends, will freeze the total length of the QSO for you to record in the comments field or elsewhere.
