Not here, they stayed in their proper area just fine. We did the 7

Do you have the the latest interm release (6.46.8 I think) - it's VERY
solid, but 6.46 may not be. Tree put this together for us just before the

F1 i.e. sending CQ or calling someone is S&P triggers them. But would be
nice if it would trigger without F1 - specially for SSB and we don't use
voice keyers linked with F1.....
