This is how my LOGCFG.DAT file was set up:
MY CALL = K4OGG
CONTEST = ARRL DX
DISPLAY MODE = COLOR
RADIO ONE TYPE = FT890
RADIO ONE CONTROL PORT = SERIAL 4WARC BAND ENABLE = FALSE
MY GRID = EM73UW
SCP MINIMUM LETTERS = 3
BIG REMAINING LIST = TRUE
How the WARC BAND ENABLE = FALSE got up there flush against the SERIAL 4, I
don't know. Could that have been the problem?
To the best of my recollection, the first time it locked, I had had several
split QSOs on 40M that TR was showing as being on 160M, and I had just
edited a QSO (changing the log to 40M), then saved the change when it
locked. The second time it happened was after a 15M S&P QSO. I had entered
the call then entered the power, hit ENTER and it locked.
The first time it happened I thought it could have been caused by RF from a
new amp; but the second time, the amp was not online.
I'll try to duplicate the problem this weekend using the same weird CONFIG file.
