Subject: [WriteLog] Update 10.16B 

If you haven't seen this on our web page here is the most 
recent update..  Sri I'm so late posting this on the reflector..

Super check, band map and packet spot windows all now force a 
dupe check if you use them to select a call for the Entry window.
Telnet packet upgrade to comply better with the telnet protocol 
for Linux servers.
CW Speed is set separately for L/R radios.
Rate display and graphs are now insensitive to mismatched clocks 
when running a multi-station network.
Report what is not liked about sound files when playing them back.
Unconditionally reset the sound board speaker mute button every 
message transmission for SSB transmission and sound board keyer.
Net Gab wraps text to window if it won't fit.
Rate display can be configured to show rate for last 10 QSOs/last 
100 QSOs (as before) or can be set for last 10 minutes/last 60 minutes.
Give a more explanatory error message when networking can't be established.
Upgrade download now includes all the rig driver updates since 10.11.

  73, de Ron K5DJ

Thanks to all, and thanks to jjreisert@alum.mit.edu for suggesting I share 
all responses. Here they are, edited with the technical portions as provided 
to me..
Hope it helps someone.

Here is the pinout for the 4N33:

1- Anode
2- Cathode
3- No Connection
4- Emitter
5- Collector
6- Base

 This pinout is typical of most optoisolators in
 the 6- pin package...

also, check the Toshiba website
http://doc.semicon.toshiba.co.jp/seek/us/td/14hikari/140024.htm for full
data sheets.

The ON4AOI site is highly recommended, a 7 page printable circuit diagram for 
several configurations, plus a commercial interface option as well.

Additional info on typical series resistors needed;

1  anode of photo diode  (input +)(use 560 ohm resistor from DTR or RTS
2  cathode of photo diode (input -)(Computer side ground)
3  no connection
4  emitter of phototransistor (rig side ground)
5  collector of phototransistor (to PTT)
6  base of phototransistor - may be left floating for this application

Howdy. This straight from RS...1-anode, 2-cathode, 3-nc, 4-emitter,
5-collector, 6-base. Check out Joe's, K0BX, web-site at
http://www.qsl.net/kobx/cwkeying.htm. he has a lot of good stuff on the
building of these little bothersome circuits.

Couldn't get to K0BX's website late at night, perhaps pilot error, give it a 

Again Many Thanks to all, Wayne and Ron, perhaps, a slight revision to the 
manual would help future writelog users looking formore details.

Best 73's to all,

  I was just going to send in my log for the WPX Phone contest when I
noticed my Writelog time doesn't agree with my Omni VI time.  I had a
operating system crash around a month ago and reloaded my operating system
(Win98, thanks Bill).  I must have set the system clock to Pacific time but
just to be sure would anyone that worked KF9YR during the WPX contest send
me an email with the time?  I want to make sure it was two hours off, my
hazy recollection may be off and I could have reloaded my computer right
after the contest (I back up all my data files so my analog memory doesn't
have to be 100% accurate!).
  Thanks in advance,
George / KF9YR

P.S. Thanks for the great program Wayne, the only problems I've had with
Writelog have been system problems or operator error!
