That seems to be the answer - at least on Win98.
I already had those lines in my AUTOOEXEC.BAT file,
and when I commented them out the 2 and 3 keys
would not work with Caps Lock On.

If you want to see what SD sees as each key is typed,
try the SHOW command. In this case SD sees " for 2,
and £ (pound sign) for 3.  They don't appear in the
callsign field because they're not valid callsign

Now that I know what's happening I'll try to fix it.

If anyone who is experiencing this problem wants
another option, just create an SD.MAP file with
the following two lines.

" 2
£ 3

It's that simple!

Has anyone seen anything similar on Win 2000 or XP?
