       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, highlight 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 the menu.
