I've never actually experienced any keying issues with direct keying
(running XP SP1, SP2 then SP3) using SD or any other software.
However, I did try a Micoham MKII but all it did was generate noise across
all bands so that was quickly removed.
I have the Microkeyer, in its box, barely used if anyone wants to make a
sensible offer, given that it is virtually new!
