Yep, it was a Win98 machine booted to DOS.  ("BootGUI=0" in
C:\MSDOS.SYS)  I can't say as a fact it didn't stop when you turned
SMARTDRV on but I really think we *did* have some glitches after that
point.  I do clearly remember the display saying "432SSB" at some point
after sunrise, and I thought you did that change before then.

(Kirk & I operated the same station on FD)

We didn't try adjusting the ICOM RESPONSE TIMEOUT or anything like that
- I don't think the problem was annoying enough to be worth the
effort.   It's very possible some adjustments there - or to the Ten-Tec
menus (which I'm not familiar with, not owning a Ten-Tec radio myself) -
might have cleared it up.
