Hi Ron -
John, KE5C, has it right. I use an Orion very successfully using Windows 98
SE version 6.79, but I have to use the "reboot to DOS" option with
SHUTDOWN, or reboot the computer directly with a DOS floppy. Here's the
appropriate section of a logcfg.dat file from a recent contest:
RADIO ONE NAME = ORION
RADIO ONE TYPE = ORION
RADIO ONE CONTROL PORT = SERIAL 2
73 and good luck - John, W4AU
