I would like to ditto Tom's remakes, in regards to RF, I too had lock up
problems in past version of TR and researched it down to RF getting to the
computer via the Keyboard cable. I put a torod coil in the windings of the
keyboard cable (works just like Chinese handcuffs!) and my problem
disappeared. Considering I am using a laptop computer sitting on a antenna
tuner, and using an external keyboard, I would suspect I would really get
RF problems, however it was an easy fix that still works.
