Hell all

We had the same problem with 9.37 seemed to be intermitted and possibly
induce, never did track it down.

These where 486's with 8 megs in them.  The hangs where consistent with
dialing the vfo (more often than not).

Network Cards (one was a 3COM 3C509 and the other was an SMC if I remember
correctly).  We ran an 8 port hub with a Laptop connected as well.  This
allowed us to use the laptop as a live backup and to also check rates and
things without disturbing the operators.
>BTW, the IC-756 configured as an IC-775 works fine (just set the hex
address in the setup to x'46' on the IC-756).  Splits work and if you make
the sub band the active band, you can point and shoot something in the
cluster and it will change the sub band frequency.  Great for running and
doing multipliers at the same time.

FT-1000's.  Then I would have a better idea of what I was listening to.
