Hi All,

I've just started using CT for the first time [CT for DOS, Version 
10.00.005] under DOS5 on an old Toshiba laptop [Monochrome T1850, 4 MB 
RAM].  I'm using CT with my Elecraft K2 (using the TS950 setting in CT).

I spent most of yesterday re-learning DOS5 & configuring CT, and seem to 
have got things working quite well.  Nevertheless, I would really 
appreciate any applicable configuration tips from experienced users.

Specifically, I'd like to know:
- any tricks for always starting CT with a preferred set of switches (such 
as -L), as my preferred list seems to be growing!;
- suggested steps for ensuring that a preferred set of text commands (such 
as Correct and NoWorkDupe) are definitely set/not set at the start of a 
- how the radio serial port can be reset without re-starting CT [currently, 
if my K2 loses power, the communications won't restore automatically when 
the K2 comes back on line.]
- any suggested AUTOEXEC.BAT & CONFIG.SYS settings that make best use of my 
4 MB RAM with CT, yet still permit effective use of Win 3.1 (Enhanced Mode) 
and the Toshiba laptop (Auto)Resume feature.   Note that I have added 
COMTSR1 -P1 -B4800 -N82 to my AUTOEXEC.BAT file.

If this all sounds like very basic stuff (or too specialised in the case of 
my specific hardware), it may be best to send any responses direct to my 
email account [steve(at)alg.demon.co.uk].

Regards to all,
