I have been having problem with Hot Switching my amp ( ACOM) for last month or so. Problem appears to be related to using pin 4 of 15 pin connector ONLY. If I use CWX, I don't have a issue until well over 60 wpm. Also if I use my WinKeyer and utilize front panel key input I have no problem. When ever I use pin 4 of 15 pin connector I have a RANDOM hot switching issue. Is there something about using pin 4 input I missed in manual?

Another issue is I DON'T think TX REQUEST INPUT (INTERLOCK) works, anyone know for SURE this works in version ?, 

I DON'T have issues between amp and other rigs. :)

I have the exact same setup.  The FLEX delay on the keying default was something like 40 ms.  I increased this to 150 and the problem permanently went away.  Apparently, the ACOM needs a bit more time or you get a HOT SWITCHING ERROR.  GL, 73, Rich, K3VAT
