> Greetings Ken,
> Ran into a weird problem while updating the station computers.
> Only tried on 3 positions so far. 2 stations on 20M and the packet
> So far it only affects TS940.
> Setup:
> CT967
> Station 1  FT1000MP  Set up as station 3 Com 1
> Station 2  TS940 Set up as station 13 Com 1
> Station 9  Just hooks packet into the network Com 1
> Setup is for CQWW   MM
> Hit Alt -G and gab between all 3 computers works fine
> Move the tuning dial on the TS940 and the CW window showing
> speed logging/keyboard comes up.
> Turn on SOUND and hit F1 and sure enuff CQ comes out the speaker.
> Try to log a contact on the second 20M station and the error message
> "Bad mode from remote input = 1" comes up on the other 2 computers.
> Contact logs on the second station, but not on the other 2 computers.
> Contact logged on the main 20M station shows up on all 3 computers.
> Remove TS940 as Radio01 on second station and all OK
