Hi Bob

I just tried to duplicate this on my Dos/XP dualboot
system, and it worked ok. I even put in odd ball
cq zones and things other then "59" for a signal 
report. It would even accept "wrong" things like
53 04
Which is really wrong! 

Suggestions:  Don't run TR with Win 2k. 
1) delete the restart.bin and try again
2) your confing.sys may need some tweaking
There is good info in the manual, or I can 
show you what I'm using.
