This is an un-praise.

I knew Winkey was shaky from my reports concerning CQ WW CW but I kinda thought that was taken care of. It is worse than ever. I have a FlexControl hooked up with buttons for CWX and they lag with delays between letters at odd times. Hitting the F-keys, besides having to switch back and forth between N1MM and SSDR has delays. About the only thing that is working right is the paddles and even then I could swear something is missing.

It's only a few hours into the contest and I must have had to resend my name 100 times. It very often comes out as K     EVIN. CQs come out as CQ NA K     4VD K4VD.

With all the technology in front of me the only thing working well enough consistently is the and, as I mentioned, I'm not even sure about them.

Contest rig?

We've worked very hard on this issue on the Alpha team. You should see fantastic performance in the soon to be released gold code.
