The Program
WinRepeat is a Windows based program to control
repeater functions using a parallel port on a computer.
The features of the program are :

The minimal requirements to run the program are :

WinRepeat uses the following pins on the printer port:

Pin  Des. Use
2 IO1 PTT output
11 Busy COR input
16&17 Ground

When WinRepeat starts it looks for a program call winrep.ini
in the current directory. If it does not find it, the program
will exit with an error. The screen shot below shows the config
file. You can turn the IDer on or off, the curtsey beep on
or off, and the tail squelch on or off.You also need to set
the name and location of the curtsey tone and the ID files.

Here is a screen shot of the output screen.
