Hello all,

I was last weekend on OK-OM Contest and used YFKtest software, it worked like a champ. However my problem concerns about my CW interface. Because I have antenna very near of shack I had RF problems with my CW interface (a very simple schematic for the parallel port used with CWDAEMON by PG4I) and in some bands my rig went to continous tx when applied F memories.

Of course I am able to operate with my paddle during contests but my preferable way on contests is using F memories.

Anyone has any schematic/sugestion to solve my problem ?

Any help will be welcome here.

Best 73s.

Get the Winkeyer USB from K1EL:

It's a great kit for the money.

I went with a superior K1EL K40 keyboard-paddle interface. I have used it with the Ten-Tec Orion 2 daily now for several years, also with the K2. It's a top shelf quality interface kit and have had no problems with RF and it sends perfect CW with the paddle or keyboard. My QRZ station has the K40 interface on the table...73's Dave,aa3ej..

Hello all,

just to say that I solved my RFI problems with an 'expensive' design from http://www.kg6haf.com/cwintf.html

I received package with IC, then it took about 5 minuts to assemble on DB25 box, then tested in all bands without problems. In caso of major problems I have another 'expensive' IC to solve RFI problem.

Anyway, tks for suggestions and fine CW on waves.
