AW: [WriteLog] Erratic CW

Tue, 28 May 2002 18:02:45 -0000

Carsten brings up an interesting point. I don't have problems with CW 
keying, even with a P-133, after closing all the misc. background 
programs. I use a COM port, not LPT port for keying. I wonder if that is 
the answer. Anyone having the problems with COM port keying?
