Hi all.  I'm hoping one of you somewhere out there has played around with the Echolink programming API.  Echolink exposes a COM object for use with Microsoft program development environments and am wondering first of all if anyone knows where I can get a complete help file from?  The CHM downloadable from the echolink.org site is defunct and does not display any help.

Secondly, I am experiencing an issue where the PTT will become stuck on.  Once my old kenwood tm231a was stuck down for over 6 hours on a full 50 watts last week (and survived)!  It has happened recently once more since that time and I would like to develop a solution for this problem before putting it back on the air (rebooting echolink daily seemed to help some).  

I've developed a program that implements the COM object exposed by Echolink.  In this way, I can monitor events raised by Echolink through it.  I've got the program reporting all events to a log file currently.  The problem is, I never see any events firing beyond PTT, RX, and TX.  I see nothing of serialstatus or the like which I thought a logical choice for being triggered when the serial port goes high or low on the RTS/DTR line??  I was hoping there was a programmatic way (hoping to avoid building a timer circuit) to accomplish monitoring of the Echolink software so that if the PTT were to get stuck, it would restart echolink.

Any advice is appreciated (TIA)!
