I think this is an ICOM software (CI-V?) issue. DXlab does it to an IC756 also at the club station. I have never had it happen with my Kenwood. Seems to be a command that connects the ICOM radio to the software causes things to switch to the sub-VFO for a couple seconds and then back. With a

Nope, will not. Not a contesting program per the author (other than the minor ability it has). Cabrillo needs special headers and format for each contest so would be too much worth anyway. Contest in another program (e.g, N1MM) and export ADIF from that and import into DX4WIN. You can output

Should not be an issue with dupes anymore. What I have seen people talk about is when there is a problem, it could think the file when resent is dupes. Just say send anyway and you are back in sync. Should not need it marked anymore and then will properly prevent you from sending a file twice

If you can export to ADIF from LogWindows it is an easy import. Jim (AD1C) can usually look at the format (from a file or sample file) and write a converter (if he has not already done one). Give it a day or two and I would expect he would reply with some good idea. Dan KI6X -Original

As others said, yes should work. Make sure the small switch on the back of the TS-850 is on manual keying (not using internal keyer). Since you are using basically 2 external keyers (on/off keying of the line), either keying will key the radio. Dan KI6X -Original Message- From:
