Dear All,
During this last ARRL I experienced that, randomly, cqing, CW slows down, or takes come seconds of pause between letters. It is a problem recognised also by other OMs. I use the virtual WK interface.
Best 73s!

Using the WinKeyer emulation, the data is processed through the CAT application that is running locally on the PC.  If there are things slowing down the PC (DPC latency, excessive use of the swap file, network latency, etc..) these factors will affect the timing.

Letting us know what action you take to possibly correct the situation would be helpful.
