If you have to use Windows to close the program, you are not using DOS.  DOS CT runs in DOS, not in a shell within Windows.  If you have any Windows except XP or later, then you have to boot into DOS.  Check the archives for dual booting an XP machine.

Do you have a radio setup?  If you setup a radio and don't have one connected, then you will usually have a problem.  Have you tried typing in a frequency, like 21010 or 7040?
