I ran for 4 separate sittings...approx.300+ q's and approx 4 hrs.
Not a hick-up from WL...Op was assisted...I am new to WL also...the <enter>
key was hard to get used to...got lost a couple times not knowing where the
focus was. Wish I'd had more time!

Pent. 180 pro     Win98
Dual monitors
128meg. ram
CW on LPT1
Rig control
Packet (RF)
TS-940 Kenwood + SB220

Everything worked perfect! (knock on wood) Great program

> entry window from there since the logical next move is to enter the

> 4. There is often a very noticeable one second delay in grabbing a packet
> spot, and sometimes no delay.
> 5. It would be great to be able to constantly view Mults on All Bands in a
> separate window while viewing (& gunning) the spots for a selected band.
> 6. "/BUST" should not show up as a multiplier.  Seems like we visited this
> year or two ago.
