      Yes I have and you are right ... aprsis32 uses 20% or less running two copies at the same time ... so the problem is not there... I just wanted to post to aprsis32 group to draw upon more users that are running both aprsis32 and aprs messenger in tandem.

      Thanks Lynn,

(also latest beta version) When I watch the Windows Task Manager once Messenger gets fully launched and the waterfall display starts, it jumps to 100% and for the most part, remains there. This causes any transmit commands for beaconing, conversing using psk, communicating with the VHF port on the TNC, etc all come to a crawl.

I have tried removing all TSR type programs running in the background down to and including my AVG Anti-Virus software. Even when it is only APRS Messenger running all by itself, I still no longer appear to have the resources to run it properly.
