I recently picked up one of the DVP boards (LZ Engineering - K1EA type) for
use with TR Log in the upcoming CQWW test.
I installed the board and set up the LOGCFG.DAT file as outlined in the TR
My computer and station configuration are as follows:
Cyrix 686 P150+
Diamond Video Card
Sound Blaster 16
USR 33.6 internal modem
COM 1 Mouse
COM 2 Modem
COM 4 Radio (FT-1000MP)
LPT 1 Printer
TR Log ver. 6.12
DVP Board Rev. C
DVPTSR.EXE ver. 1.03

when I went to replay one of the files it created all I got was what
sounded like computer hash.
I would like to hear from anyone who is using one of the DVP boards with TR
Log and if possible have you send me an email with copies of your computers
'Config.sys', 'Autoexec.bat' and 'Logcfg.dat' files.
I would also like to know if your are successfully going from Win '95 and
restarting in DOS mode to run the program or if you have to boot DOS by
If a phone call would be easier and quicker to explain what needs to be
done to get things working properly, please send along your phone number
and a good time to call.
Thanks in advance,
