9.23 thru 9.37 all work OK here under DOS, WIN95, and WIN98 using LPT1 using
LPT1 to key the radios. I've used it on a variety of computers: NEC Laptop,
Compaq Laptop, SONY VAIO, DELL, various Homebuilt models, and just now on a
COMPAQ Presario here at my Breckenridge, Colorado QTH.

Keying thru LPT2 was broken for a while, but has worked OK the past year or

If your radio keys up and stays keyed up when you hit a function, you may
say it's not RF but 99% of the time that's the culprit.  Ferrites in the
keying line and common grounds with the computer normally solve this
