Here's a note from N5IN back in Y2K:

So, it seems that you can wait until CT loads fully, then press an F-Key and
it should clear out.

Subject: [ct-user] TSR Help needed for CT 10 user

I am running CT10 (CT8 upgrade) and use COM 1 as my interface to my IC756P3 
for band settings and mode.

The same cable is used with MixW for PSK & RTTY operation, and DTR is used 
to switch the interface relay between receive to transmit mode.

CT10 sets the DTR signal on at all times. This keeps the transmitter in 
transmit mode, unless I unplug the DTR signal to my RIGblaster interface 

It sure would be nice if my initialization TSR for the CT contest logging 
would just keep DTR turned off.

I have played with "-DTR" for comtsr1 in my CT initialization batch file, 
but have had no luck in turning DTR off.

Any suggestions??   Andy K4YKZ
My present batch-file serial communications port TSR command is:
comtsr1 -b1200 -P1 -I4 -A3f8
