I am trying to get a second radio going for RU using a Keyspan USB to 
Serial Converter.
Following AA5AU's  instructions on his Web Site, I was able to get it 
working fine through MMTTY using EXTFSK.  However, Don has a note at the end of 
his writeup that says EXTFSK is not supported from within Writelog using the 
MMTTY Plug In.  Is that still the case?  
Sure enough, if I try to use the COM port configured for the USB converter 
from within Writelog, it does not work (i.e no diddle).  Don also mentions 
that Software generated FSK can be used from within Writelog if you use 
RTTYRITE as the TU.  That does , indeed, seem to work.
Does that mean that there is really no way from within Writelog to use a 
the MMTTY engine for the second radio if I am going to use the USB to Serial 
Or am I missing something?

I should have checked the reflector archives before posting.  It is all 
working now.  One radio is using direct FSK via a direct COM port and the other 
is using Software Generated FSK via the USB port.
The problem was that I was using the TX and TXOFF buttons in the MMTTY 
Control Panel.  When I didn't hear any diddling, I assume it was not working.  
Once I used the F keys and my pre-stored Writelog messages, everything 
started working.
Sorry for the bandwidth.  Merry Christmas to all and see you in the Round
