You should not be using the TR DVPTSR.  That is for the K1EA DVP.  Set it
the configuration file for using an external voice keyer. You have to set
DVK PORT to either 1 or 2 depending on what address you set the Contest Card
to.  Most of the time it is LPT2.

For recording you have two choices until TRLOG handles all the Contest Card

Preferred choice:  Wire up a switch to pins 5 & 6 of the connector.  Use a
push button momentary (Normally Open).  When you want to record, press the
button then press the function key of the message you want to record.
Immediately start talking to record.  Release the button when you finish
your messages.

Alternate choice:  Use the CC-TSR program on top of TRLOG.  I have not heard
of any problems with CC-TSR, but I have a general fear of TSR programs.  You
never know how they will react with other programs.

As far as the ESC working, that is controlled by a bit in the LPT register
that Tree has assigned for controlling external antenna switches.  I will
send some info to him about this. It should not be an impossible fix, since
you would never be trying to control an antenna switch through the Contest
Card.  Any antenna switches would need to be controlled by an LPT at an
other address.

Hope this helps.  73 - Gary
