[WriteLog] TS-850 & FSK - getting closer
Fri, 27 Oct 2000 22:17:08 -0400
Yes- I see. When I uncheck that, the rig no longer keys up as you said.
Now, the remaining problem is how the port I want to use to control the PTT
and FSK is defined. When I try to assign it using the Port menu item on the
RTTY window, I get an error message box saying the port is not available.
>From a Windows standpoint, it's there and operational. How do I define the
port to Writelog, or is that necessary?
Here's the current Ports section of my Writelog.ini file:
I've not modified anything here. By the way, when I go to SETUP - PORTS on
the main Writelog window, COM4 is there, but not checked as a rig or CW
