[SD-User] SD and windows keying

I've never actually experienced any keying issues with direct keying 
(running XP SP1,  SP2 then SP3) using SD or any other software.

However, I did try a Micoham MKII but all it did was generate noise across 
all bands so that was quickly removed.

I have the Microkeyer, in its box, barely used if anyone wants to make a 
sensible offer, given that it is virtually new!

73, Rob
