I obviously have something wrong. DXLabs Suite with Flex6K.
I click on a cw cluster spot, go get a Coke, eat a slice of pie, and MAYBE the rig has qsyd to the station.
My 5K is instantaneous.
It's even worse if the Cluster Spot is for a Split Operation.
Not twice as long but definitely longer.
This is a fast Neil built computer.

Could my Primary Cat Serial Port which is set to 19200 be too slow?
When I click on a spot, Commandore qsys but SSDR doesn't follow for till it's good and ready. LOL

Tnx Reggie
I purposely shut down the whole system last night.
This morning I checked to see if the cat 5 cable was properly inserted into the rig and also into the router and not the 16 port switch..
It seemed to be good.
Just for grins I replaced the cat cable with a brand new high quality shielded cable.
Started up the system and now it also qsy's instantaneous.

The 6K is far more sensitive to rf than my 5K, Maybe that was the problem.
I'll play more today

I did work a few of the w1aw stations on 40 this am.
