I noticed the NONSSB, also. I was running 6.20, not interfaced to
my radio (FT-990), though I saw this when operating in DXpedition
mode in Belize and was interfaced to the FT-990. I was not using
CW keyiing either. This problem has been occurring during several
versions. My computers are, in each case, a 386SX-33. At first,
I thought it was an interface problem with the radio, but not this
