Oh, Lord Have Mercy....Murphy has set up housekeeping in my shack, methinks. Ha! I beg forgiveness from several who were calling and I had to fumble around. Lost config with Port 4 (Winkey) multiple times. Lost config with COM 11 (Orion) multiple times. Had to reboot this doggone Windoze Lenovo T430 laptop FOUR (did he say FOUR?????) times. Then, somehow, the CW connection was lost to N1MM, so I checked the Config settings on COM 4 and the doggone box by 'Winkey' somehow became unchecked. I clicked that and things seemed to work again--for a while. Don't I sound pitiful? Well, that's how us backwoods Rednecks in MS function most of the time. Now, here's what hurt really bad....I could hear my cross-town rival/buddy, Joe AB5OR, just tearing it up, racking up Qs with y'all...and here I sat waiting for the confounded Windoze box to find its place in the universe. All the while, Joe's log book was getting fatter and fatter. Y'all need to stop answering his calls! He's so high and mighty with his new Flex 6500 and 'secret' interface boxes and all sorts of stuff (he's on some kind of super-secret test team for ham radio DX and contesting hardware and software developers) that he will hardly even have his chauffeur roll down the back window for him so he can wave when his entourage passes my shack. Come on, folks...let's play fair. 'Fair,' by the way, means 'Answer WB5EIN but not AB5OR'! Got it? OK, now that things are back to abnormal around here, I hope to catch some of you later today. Seriously (as much as that hurts), I thank each of you for the Qs. And, I hope that these little epistles on 3830 provide you some small element of relief from the totally serious, hard-core entries by the REAL contesters within CWOps. 73, --Dr. Larry S.
