I'm using a Compaq, with a +3400 AMD processor and windows  XP Home  and not 
using any interface for CW or Rig control with N1MM software.  I did take 
and Old  PCI card from my old box  with 2 com 1 Lpt and put it into this 
mach.   Using the same CW/PTT  Lpt  keying ckt that I used with NA,  It also 
works with CT and TR.  No fancy boxes

>>Hi Andy and all,

>>In Advanced Features you did not mention one very important thing.

>>As for Drawbacks
>>ï Need DOS machine
>>Works just fine on Win98.
>>ï Windows version not likely
>>Although it is the work in progress (though most contest loggers are) here

>>http://rescab.nm.ru/  TR4W is based on the original TRlog code.
