So, I decide to play around with the WPX a little bit. I unzip
ALL624.ZIP (latest version I have on my radio computer). I go get my
nifty TR interface box that's been disconnected since I operated the
DX Contest back in February...been using my keyer for the little bit
I've been on lately.
Yes, I'm rusty, and no, I've never sent all that well anyway, but
gee-whiz...I can't send at all with TR. I plug the paddle back in my
keyer and everything's OK. Hmmm. I reconfigure the program from
LPT2 to LPT1 for the paddle/CW. No difference. Then, I remembered
this release note:

I unzip 6.22 and it sends fine. So I try 6.23 and it sends like
Anybody else having any problems sending with the paddles after the
6.23 release? I haven't tried 6.25 or 6.26 yet, but didn't see this
addressed in the release notes for those versions.
The problem manifests itself as a delay in sending from paddle input
to CW output. I just plain can't send with this timing.
