[WT-support] Radio 1 Window in WT4.5.0

Hi Bob, I believe the Radio B was ok, but not sure. It is true, I use a USB
to serial converter but don't know what kind of chipset it is based on. RF
is not an issue as the transmitting antenna is more than 500 ft away from
the shack. But good to get this information and will check it out. I was
wondering that after restart of the software it was working again. And yes I
use the default wintest settings for the FT1k MP.
Thanks for the fast reply
Armin, DK9PY

I don't recall seeing any reports like this before.

Are you using a USB-to-Serial adapter?  If so, and if that adapter is based
on the "Prolific" chipset, perhaps that is the problem.  These devices are
notoriously unreliable.  Perhaps new drivers will help, or a new
USB-to-Serial interface based on the FTDI chipset.

Also, what was happening on VFO B at the time?

I assume that you are using the Win-Test FT-1000MP defaults: 4800,N,8,2
DTR/RTS = Always OFF.

I noticed a very strange behaviour in the VFO A frequency field of Radio 1
(FT1000MP MarkV). During the contest I was wondering that the band suddenly
changed in the working area from 20m to 15m (although the xcvr was still on
20m). The frequency shown in the VFO A field was something like 12405.?.
Changing the band with the arrow keys worked still fine on the xcvr, but in
the working field it jumped to 15m again. I only could stop the behaviour by
closing WT and restart it again. It happend 3 times during the contest.
Luckily I watched afterwords the VFO A field in the Radio window and the
frequency on the radio to make sure that when it happens to restart WT.
Hopefully WT did not log QSOs in the wrong band. Has this been seen before?
I can remember that it happend also last year with WT3.27, but forgot to
