This versions comes with various bugs fixed, a couple of new contests 
(ARI 40/80 meters and UFT contest) added and some new features.

Thanks to OM7ZZ and W4TV, the code for the internal Win-Key driver has 
been rewritten. I hope that the CW random speed change is now history! 
Thanks everybody for the accurate reports regarding that problem.

2.21.0 (December 8, 2005)

- Bugfix: in ARRL Sweepstakes, pressing the TAB key issued in a
   software crash. Fixed. Tks N3KS.

- When the software is sending a CW message with $spacebar on radio 1,
   the software was actually "pressing spacebar" in the Secondary Radio
   window if SHIFT is pressed ("Shift Binds to the Secondary Radio"
   feature). Fixed. Tks OH2JFN.

- Bugfix: setting SO1R Technique after either SO2R or SO2R Advanced
   has been used was not resetting the scenario macros. Fixed.
   Tks I4UFH.

- Added 4 new COM ports, which now changes the number of supported
   COM ports up to 12.

   multiplier station which are not Mults (see in "Tools" menu)!

   each message.

   One can also use the text commands "MKSWAP" or "WKREVERSE" in the

- Bugfix: Latch mode with EZMaster was not working in CW. Fixed. Tks
   G3BJ and OH2HU.
