SmartSDR v1.4.0 Loss of TX Output

What I previously reported as a loss of TX audio appears to be a loss of TX output regardless of mode.

Spent a little time in the Oklahoma QSO Party this afternoon.  I let the radio sit idle for a few minutes & when I tried to transmit on CW, there was no power output.  It took a reset to factory defaults to get it back.  I have also noticed that if I let the radio sit idle for a while in SSB, also there will be no output until I do a reset to factory defaults.

I normally leave the radio powered on 24/7.  Every time I try to check into the morning traffic net after the radio has been sitting all night, I have to do a reset to factory defaults to have transmit audio.

Yesterday (Saturday) I experienced the radio intermittently freezing up.  All would be well for 1-3 minutes followed by the radio freezing for 5-10 seconds.  It would recover and then repeat after another couple of minutes. I reverted to v1.3.8 & then re-installed v1.4.0.  The intermittent freeze-ups have not come back, but I still have the intermittent loss of output.

It looks like I will have to revert to v1.3.8 before I try to run the Indiana Trafficc Net on Tuesday morning.

Ronald,
I uninstall the old version before installing the new one. Therefore, CAT & DAX are v1.4.0.
