I just found out about this reflector today. I bought 9.16 for the
IBM PC-XT about 13 months ago. I have had a problem in IARU and NAQP
operations. Partway into the contest, if I type in a call and then
either 1.) hit CHECK CALL or 2.) hit <space> or 3.) hit <return>, the
computer will lockup if the call is a dupe. (It will print the dupe warning
message first.) I then have to reboot. The only way around this is to
always hit CHECK PARTIAL before the <return> key. It doesn't seem to happen
necessarily on every dupe, but I would guess that 30%-50% will cause it.
(That means I can only once in awhile get away with forgetting CHECK PARTIAL.)
I looked through all the archives and saw nothing on this
problem. Is there something that someone remembers about this? Is there
something I am doing wrong? Perhaps the problem is only in the PC-XT
version? Any help would be appreciated.
