Hello, Mirko:

AE0M and I set up AE0M at N6RO last weekend running version 5.99+5dB.  We
had 7 computers on the network with 5 radio stations running full-time.
There were three DVPs and two CVBs running.  Five of the seven computers had
radios interfaced to them -- three Yaesu (FT990, FT1000MP), one Kenwood
TS950SD and one Icom IC756.  We had no DVP problems other than one
mysterious occurrence on one machine which Tree and I are still researching.
All the other DVPs, CVBs, and radio interfaces worked perfectly, as did
packet.  The network was rock solid.

Maybe there is another explanation for the problem you were experiencing.
If you want to send me <or Tree> a copy of your logcfg.dat file, I'd be
happy to look at it.

Now if we can only get him to make TR mix drinks during the slow times....

73, Steve K6AW
