This is a extremely helpful post and I will print it out to keep it handy.
The assignment of rigs by clicking on the radio (top and bottom) buttons was something that I had completely missed before. When I followed your directions, the setup of the radios was clear and fail-proof. I had used those buttons before to set frequencies, etc; but I never realized that the com ports needed to be set there in addition to the setup -> ports area.
It is amazing that I could eventually get it to work before by messing with radio right/left and setup/ports manipulations.
As for the PTT problem, I will set the radios to the no "COMM PTT" setting and see if that fixes the problem. It may take a while to say for sure since the problem was intermittent before.
I have now been playing with the settings and have found that with the radio's COMM PTT off (on the two MkV radios), the CW PTT set to "On LPT pin 16/COMM RTS", and "PTT to CW Delay" set to 50ms; then I am able to key both radios without losing the first dot or dash of the first character sent.
I got these settings by trial and error and I am a little confused why I needed to make a LPT selection to make the radios key the way I wanted them to. I don't have a LPT connected to anything on this new computer running XP and the LPT reference confuses. The other combinations of settings causes me to lose the first dot or dash on at least one of the radios.
If anyone ever taught a "Dummies for Writelog" class, I would sign up immediately to attend.
Wayne, thanks for the timely response and the good information.
