I used SD V14.29 in AFS on Sunday and experienced frequent, but irregular,
hang-ups lasting 10-20 seconds, when operating in CQ mode, which prevented
the entry of callsigns and froze the CW message, sometimes in the middle of
the entry or during the playing of the message. This is not the first time
I have noticed the hang-up.
During a hang-up, the coloured flashing dot normally seen at the start of
the callsign field, disappears, only to reappear some seconds later with no
manual intervention. Everything else works very well. I checked after the
contest that the problem occurred even when the rig (FT1000MP) was not
transmitting, so RF interference is not the cause. How can I cure this?
The laptop used is an ancient, but reliable, Toshiba Satellite Pro. Is this
not fast enough (300MHz processor) to run SD correctly?
