[WT-support] wtRotators

I used wtRotators from WinTest for over a year to trigger my Green Heron  
(GH) controller.  Hitting Ctrl-F12 would trigger the GH to turn to the  
azimuth of the station on the log line.  Then for some unknown reason, and  
without any reconfiguration of anything, wtRotators failed to trigger the  GH.  
After some investigation and help from Jeff, W2FU, the father of the  GH, 
wtRotators started working again.  Then about a week later, it again  failed.  
In advance of the WAE contest, I did not have a chance to troubleshoot  the 
problem, so I  began the contest with the antenna simply pointed  to EU.  
Well into the contest, I thought I'd give it a try by hitting  Ctrl-F12 and, 
walla, the GH was triggered and the antenna  turned!  Then, periodically 
during the balance of the contest,  sometimes, Ctrl-F12 would trigger the GH, 
and sometimes it  wouldn't. BTW, there are no cables being connected or 
disconnected or any  loose connections that I am aware of when wtRotators work or 
does not work with  the GH.  I do not seem to have any stray RF in the 
I am totally puzzled as to why this would be happening, and I would  
appreciate any ideas.  
Here is my installation:
K3 with Acom 2000A amp
Win XP
WinTest 4.10.0 - Radio control on Com5, Winkey on Com6
MicroHam CW Keyer with USB connection
Green Heron RT-21 connected to Com4
Thanks, George
