I use a SIIG PCI dual port card.  At first, I could not get it to work under 
DOS.  Worked FB in Windows but no joy in DOS or a DOS Window.  Would not 
communicate with either radio or with the TNC.  Calls to SIIG customer service 
did not solve the problem.

Experimenting, I re-booted to DOS and went through the step-by-step 
confirmation option.  (I'm using whatever DOS version came with my Windows98.)  
By answering "No" to certain steps, I have been able to get the SIIG card to 
work in DOS, and I'm in great shape for CW contests and using two radios.  
However, one of the drivers I don't load in this boot-up sequence is the driver 
for the sound card.  So, I am unable to operate SBDVP in SO2R mode with this 

This may be a long shot for you since this appears to be some sort of 
PC-specific conflict between TR and the OS and its drivers.  But, I can email 
you my boot sequence (what drivers get loaded, what don't) if you want to give 
it a shot.
