If you've seen Joe's email, he said (and I highlighted) :
Polling rate is strictly a function of the application - the microHAM
interface forwards the application polls and commands as they are received.
* I don't have access to an Orion to confirm but placing Writelog on the
simulator and checking its polling rate with Orion selected indicates
WriteLog polls the Orion at 100 ms intervals.* BTW, N1MM Logger shows the
same polling rate.
"In the writelog.ini file, under the [configuration] section, you can set
or any other number... where this number represents the polling interval in
*The manual states that the default value is 500 milliseconds.*
It would appear that the manual is incorrect, at least with regards the
version Joe tested.
