Re: winkeyer question on amateur contact log

So you need to make sure that you are getting the message that says something to the effect "WinKeyer Version XXX opened - success ! " when you tell it to configure WinKeyer.  If you aren't seeing that confirmation, then WinKeyer is not active.  If you're seeing the confirmation, make sure you have all the desired options checked - correct keying output port, sidetone enable/disable, speed pot lock/unlock, etc. and then use the "test" button at the bottom to make sure you're hearing the WinKeyer respond.  If it doesn't respond, then something is amiss.  If it does respond (I think it sends a series of V's, then your call), then click the "done" button to exit.  Do not click the "close" button or you'll turn the WinKeyer off.

ok, so there appears to be some sort of issue. I have the com port
set correctly. What else do i need to set in the winkeyer setup? I
just left all of the defaults.

Cheers,
Jed
