B  : Exit the Gateway
K  : Enters Converse mode.
C  : Connect.
D  : Disconnect.
H  : Help
J  : Lists the 20 last stations heard on the port.
P  : Link from one port to another.
M  : Monitor
F  : Frequency-selection (for PACTOR only).
CQ : CQ command of the gateway (for PACTOR only).

Once the selection of an authorized port has been made, a channel will be
granted, depending upon availability. This channel will use the users own
callsign. Switching to converse mode is automatic when the corresponding
station is connected; switching back to command mode takes place on a
disconnection, or if the Esc character or a > is sent in the first column.

Switching to converse mode can also be made with the command K. 

The C command must be followed by the destination callsign, and optionnaly
by the letter V followed by a string of digipeater callsigns.  Like:
C Destination call V repeat1 repeat2 ...

A file GATEWAY.SYS can be created to configure the use of the gateway.
This is especially handy for PACTOR where frequencies (see the f-command 
below) are declared in this file.

The F command (frequency selection) for PACTOR gives a list of available
frequencies preceded by a number.  Send the number for the desired 
frequency.  Example:
Cmd :f
 1:14070       2:14071       3:14072       4:14073
 5:14074       6:14075       7:14076       8:14077
 9:14078      10:14079      11:14080      12:14081
13:14082      14:14083      15:14084      16:14085
17:14086      18:14087      19:14088      20:14089
21:21078      22:21084
