I tried SD with microKeyer 2R+ and I found probably some bugs.
1} When I tried to switch between 1R FT-1K and 2R TS-480SAT using \ doesn't
Command PORTS than set CW port 1R to 51 (LPT1) and CW port 2R to 51 (LPT1).
Now \ works, not absolutely correct: 1R than swith for second to 2R, but when I
set CW ports for radios back to value 06 (WinKey port at microKeyer) than
finaly \ switch between radios works correctly.
2) Next I found strange behaviour in RUN mode. When I wrote down CALL and press
ENTER, after while I got "WinKey error" message, after about 4 sec. delay CW
keying begin. I got such error message only in this case. When I made CW keying
manually then using TAB set to field, wrote down contest code and ENTER, it
Now I'm using microKeyer 2R+ only SO1R (CW port 1R is 06, CW port and control
port for 2R is 0) and behaviour 2) is still there.
BTW, I asked my friend Joe OM7ZZ (microHam) for help with 1)
I tried functionality with useful SW Parmon (Parallel Port Monitor -
http://www.geekhideout.com). When I click there on LPT pin 14 microKeyer 2R+
switched between 1R and 2R without problem.
Therefore problem is between LPT and SD...
Paul, I hope you can fix these problems, because your SW is very useful.
BTW, I made SD extension for few OM/OK local contests, because they have very
strange/complicated rules. You can see it here:
