qtel - a "QT EchoLink" client
Qtel stands for the "QT EchoLink" client. It is only a EchoLink client
application. There is no "sysop mode". If it is a link you want to
run, have a look at the SvxLink server application. Qtel is quite a simple
application, so most things should be self explainatory. There are three
windows: the main window, the communications dialog and the settings dialog.
The Qtel Main Window
The main window consists of four areas. The top-left is where to choose which
class of staions to view (Conferences, Links, Repeaters and private Stations).
All stations in a class is shown to the top-right. At left-bottom is a message
area that shows the messages from the EchoLink directory server. At
right-bottom is a list of incoming connections. To accept an incoming
connection, highligt the station and press "Accept".
The Qtel Communications Dialog
The communications dialog is used to perform a Qso to anoher station. To
activate it, double-click on a station line or just press the enter key when
the station is highlighted. To connect to the station, press the Connect
button. To transmit, press the PTT button. To disconnect, press the
"Disconnect" button. In the big, white area in the middle of the
window, info messages from the remote station are shown. Chat messages from
the remote station is also shown here. In the oneline white area below, chat
messages can be typed that is sent to the remote station.
The Qtel Settings Dialog
The configuration dialog is brought up the first time the application is
started. Most fields are self explainatory. Location is the short string that
is shown in the EchoLink directory server listing. The info message is the one
that is sent to the remote station upon connection. In the Directory Server
tab are some settings for the EchoLink directory server connection.
There are no options. Start the program within a console - qtel & - or from
