Does anyone have an idea why the CW keyer in such Win95 programs such as Write 
Log v9.09 & DX4WIN v3.02 work flawlessly, but generate only a solid carrier 
with TR & NA? DX4WIN & WL claim to use the same pinout as the DOS loggers, & 
they are correct-but for some reason, I cannot get either TR or NA to send CW. 
This is an odd problem that has baffled me, & one I would like to get squared 
away-any suggestions and/or comments are welcome & appreciated.

My contest rig is a Yaesu FT-920, the computer is a Compaq Presario 4122 with a 
150 MHz Pentium & 32 megs of RAM.

We didn't try RTTY at K4BFT,  our 5A FD site.  Unfortunately my work
schedule didn't give me a chance to set up a true RTTY station. I did
some quick listening on "normal" RTTY frequencies and operation would
have been difficult if not impossible due to interference from both the
CW and SSB stations, e.g. CW 7020 QSX 7025-30 and SSB 7240. Granted my
listening was with an Alinco DX-70 without any RTTY equipment but given
the physical proximity due of all stations at a FD site.  It will take
some beyond "state of the art" filters on all three stations on the same
band to prevent mutual interference.
