<p>I have been getting my station back together again and have been playing
<br>version 6.48. I have found a couple things that I really don't
<p>First, I see you have added a CW TICKER window. I have always
hated sending CW via
<br>the keyboard because I don't know if I am making mistakes or not.
THANKS for adding
<br>that window. I love it. I can't wait to use the NEXTBANDMAP
too. Neat ideas.
<p>Here is how I have been playing with the program and my setup.
<p>I have a Pentium 60 and a 486 computer networked. Both are using
6.48. I am using
<br>an A/B switchbox for Monitor/Keyboard/mouse.
<p>I have changed the colors on both machines and both are the same.
I tried to
<br>make the BANDMAP window background GRAY and it turned out DARK BLUE.
Just for kicks, I
<br>tried to make it WHITE and it turned out GRAY. I then tried making
<br>background YELLOW and I got ORANGE. I have never had color problems
<br>of fact, the bandmap CALLSIGNS turn YELLOW as they age.
<p>Something else that happened concerning colors. I let the computers
sit for a couple
<br>hours with the monitor turned off and TR running (with packetcluster
on the 486). I came
<br>back and turned on the monitor and a lot of the PRINT was missing.
As I was looking
<br>at the screen, I noticed more print disappearing. I wonder if
it had something to
<br>do with my colors and the BANDMAP color change? I could not see
anything I typed, NO packet
<br>no bandmap spots but all background colors were fine. I am trying
to duplicate the problem.
<br>I rebooted the computer and it was fine. I never switched to
the other computer to check
<br>the screen there.
<p>I will send you me config file if you think that might hold the answer.
