    cancelled when SD polled WinKey to check the
    setting of the speed pot (every 1.5 seconds).
    The result was erratic sending.

    The polling interval has been changed to 10
    seconds, and the timer is reset at the start
    of any message playback.  This minimises the
    chances of an unwanted speed change during
    message playback.  Thanks G3LET.

    contests with the template parameter

    conversion while logging or editing serials.

    This parameter has been added to all relevant

Click on the title bar, or the SD icon, at the top
LHS of the window and select Properties, then Font.
If you have a widescreen (16:9) monitor, select the
Lucida Console font.  For a 4:3 monitor, select the
Consolas font (not available on XP).  Then choose
whatever size of font you prefer.  SD's window
expands or contracts in direct proportion to the
chosen font size.

details - pokane at ei5di dot com. Older versions
are not supported, so please confirm that the
