Dick, W7ZR, correctly pointed out to me not to confuse the 
speed error with this one. Running faster then 1200 with the
Icom radios will cause non ssb read out errors. This is a 
different problem, same errors.

>Ran version 6.51 again in full blast multi-multi mode for the WPX.
>I now use seven Pentium 90 mHz 100% DOS machines in the 
>network and had zero TRLog software problems. 
>I did have some IC781 logging errors where it would switch to
>vhf, nonssb or some such junk. I had another 781 that ran with
>no errors so spent some time during the contest looking for 
>the problem. This stuff only shows up when you are in a contest
>and usually I don't have the time to troubleshoot.
>Found the ICOM 4 port level converter box is sensitive to RF. I could
>make TRLog drop into the wrong mode/freq by moving the box
>around. I put a rfi choke on both the in and out cables and the 
>problem went away. If you see this problem and are using the Icom
>level converter this may be RFI problem for you as well. 
>We find the MULTI INFO MESSAGE display very valuable when
>running multi-multi. A useful feature would be a way to clear out
>the display after loading it with a lot of errors as we did. Even 
>better a way the info message would go away after some set 
>time. It's a PITA to announce the 80 meter frequency when the 80
>meter operator is dead asleep and hasn't sent a CQ in two hours.
