Re: [wsjtgroup] Windows XP Question / Problem...
- Hi Tip
I have the same problem here on both my WinXP machines if I have the mic gain set too high when using the interface. I figured this out early on that when certain web pages refresh,(ping jockey,50 prop logger ,etc) it will cause my interface to go into TX mode for a second while I'm receiving.Dropping the mic gain resolved it for me. Hope this is of help.
