I bit the bullet and upgraded from trusty, reliable 6.45 to new and
desirable 6.73 Friday night. Made a few test contacts, everything seemed to
be working. In fact, started the contest with Radio 1 on 20 and Radio 2 on
40. Everything cooking. Good start with lots of S02R. Then late in the
second hour I moved Radio 2 to 15 and Radio 1 came over to 40 for one last
check. Dang! Every time I would Alt-D to work someone, it would go back to
20m. Same problem after moving Radio 1 to 10. Go back to 20 and CQ for a
while, Alt-D works on Radio 2 on whatever band. After working with the
concept for a while, I decided that it would be far more productive and
error-free if I went back to 6.45 and that's how I operated the last 21
hours, even though I wouldn't have the call-on-deck feature that works so
I figure I did some little thing wrong in the config file, but I sure
couldn't find it in a hurry. Switching back to last year's configs and 6.45
made everything normal.
I did some experimenting back in March with interfacing a radio, but had
nothing hooked up to serial ports other than keying circuits this time. Is
this a clue?
Any clues where to look?
