My guess is that your TRMASTER.DTA file has either very
few names or no names and the simulator is looking for a 
call with a name.  If this is the case then import the names
from your sprint log or add the names.asc file thst is in 
the name directory on the disk that is shipped out with TR-Log.

This sounds like you are getting RF into your computer -- try adding
some FE beads or split cores to the keying line right next to 
the keying interface.  You can also disable the PTT signal in
TR-Log and this will also help with RFI problems.  Do this 
in the CTL-J menu.

To get updates to TR-Log -- check section 8 of the manual - it 
gives you all the details on all the update options. 
If you do not have section 8 then you need a new manual.  
You can download a new manual from www.QTH.com/tr or buy a
printed one from me.  

To get on the email update list - juset send a message to 
N6TR at n6tr@contesting.com and ask him to add you. 
Make sure you are a paid up subscriber to TR-Log or better yet
a lifetime subscriber.
