KL2A and I are running N1MM Logger + multisingle in IARU contest today as W0LFA.

We are using the current version of Logger + with a Flex 6700 and the latest version of SSDR 1.8.3 along with latest SSDR CAT.

Logging and SSDR PC is running Windows 7 Pro SP1 with Intel Core 2 2.13 GHz CPU with 2 GB RAM

Logger + is interfaced for CW to SSDR CAT COM 6 with Port Protocol Winkeyer, Port Type Serial, and Serial Port Type Serial FlexVSP.

Jon KL2A has noticed that when he types in the logging window while the Flex is sending CW generated by Logger + the sent CW is choppy. So, we can't enter callsigns or exchange during TX.

Is the problem the way I set up Logger + and SSDR? Or just an underpowered PC?

Go into the Task Manager and set Logger to low priority; right click on the Logger Task and select priority and select low. You can also set SSDR priority to High and if all this fails can try SSDR as priority Real Time. With performance monitor check CPU utilization to see if any uninvited apps are sucking up CPU cycles.
