AEA Pactor Driver for BPQ32 switch.

AEAPactor.dll

This driver allows BPQ32 applications to make and receive Pactor calls using the AEA/Timewave PK232 Controller.

The driver configuration is specified in the bpq32.cfg file

MYCALL is set to the PORT config PORTCALL if specified, otherwise to NODECALL. Any MYCALL in the config file is ignored.

Configuration.

The driver is defined to BPQ32 as an External port, and needs some driver-specific configuration

The first line of the config defines what BPQ Application incoming calls should connect to. If omitted, calls go to the command handler.

APPL PMS ; Autoconnect to BPQ32 PMS Application

If you are using the Rig Control feature for scanning, add the RIGCONTROL command next.

All commands that are essential to run with BPQ32 are sent automatically. You only need to include any special setup you need, such as changing retry counts.

The commands that are preset are in two groups. One set is sent before the commands you specify, so can be changed. The others are sent after your commands, as they are essential for correct operation with BPQ32.
