Version 1.4.3 of SmartSDR, keying radio via footswitch through mic socket. Running Windows 7 SP1, 8GB RAM, Intel Core i5 4690. Both radio and computer connected to the same router via Cat 6.

Several times during the contest I would press the footswitch, the radio would go into TX as normal RX audio would mute, the waterfall would stop, the panadapter would show the waveform of my spoken audio in realtime but there was no output. An external Diawa CN-801 confirmed no RF being transmitted.
