Re: Commander PTT Sluggish with JT65-HF

The connection to other members of the DXLab Suite is handled by
JT-Alert. No application - either DXLab Suite or JT-Alert may be
run with elevated privileges ("run as administrator"). DDE works
only between "peers".

If you have questions about JT-Alert, contact Laurie VK3AMA (via
the support page in JT-ALert - send him the session files from
JT-Alert so he can diagnose your problems).

I tested this with DXLabTest 1.3.2 and got the same result. Can you please
tell me what I am missing here? There are too many moving parts for this
old head to track.

However, since I prefer hardware PTT ever since I lost a rig
due to a hung software PTT several years ago, I generally used
a separate serial port for JT65-HF (and use hardware PTT from

Yes, no difference.

And I am not a fan of WSJT-X yet.
