Rick thank you for a technical response.   Since you said "The SSL
certificate for the site was issued 3/12/2018, so that's what caused the
issue, not some update to DX4WIN." What was / is  different from other
updates for V9, that worked before this SSL certificate of 3/12/2018?
Sorry for the BW, but just curious.



thank you..  /w1zz
