During the ARRL CW I discovered some problems with TR sending scrap every time I got an answer from a station like W7/DL3OI (that was a good one from Wyoming - thanks!). I had the radio connected to COM1 and AUTO SEND CHARACTER COUNT = 4.

To get the / I have to use the Shift key and then the radio moves in frequency and the CW going out is not readable - it's just rubbish. It always ended with a click on the CLEAR button on the radio to get back on the listening frequency and hitting the paddle and send a SRI and then the call.

How can I avoid that to happen? I have tried to find something about this in the manual, but haven't found it (if it is there).

I really like the feature to use the left and right Shift keys to manipulate the RIT on the radio and I also like the feature that dont use the AUTO SEND CHARACTER COUNT = 4 when you type a call that have the / in it in the beginning.

Have I missed something in the LOGCFG.DAT?

By the way - when I was S&P-ing I had a hard time to correct everybody insisting I was ZS3A instead of 7S3A :-) Also to try a QSO twice with a 1x1 call that insisted I was a dupe instead of working me. He was not in my log before... That will be a busted call in his log and I didn't get that 1x1 :-(
