HNY to all.
Steve pse which is your writelog version?
I have noticed the same delay-freeze in the last cq ww cw but
1)without fkeys, normal operation with function keys
2)my version was 11.21
3)operating system is windows 7 and writelog is installed in a different 
directory from the default
4)I had two computers in network
5)this happened more often when we had more qsos
6)computer was an old pentium 4 with 3gb memory
any common with me?
