Fw: [WriteLog] I had a small problem

I had a similar problem. The same problem I have posted several times
before. Sometimes it would be a steady tone, other times the RTTY receiver
(MMTTY) would just quit responding. I could close the RTTYRite window and
re-open it and all would be well. It ALWAYS occurred after sending CQ a few
times. I have had this problem for several months. For this weekend, I had a
different computer with a different sound card and an FSK interface instead
of a RigBlaster. But, it still did it. Now I'm thinking RF coming in on the
sound card line input. Any ideas?
