I don't think so. On the SO2R tab in the microHAM Router software, you
have to choose one or the other:
- microHAM Control Protocol on COM port
- Classic Auto Control.
If you tell Win-Test to use both, I'm not sure exactly what happens, but I
*think* all SO2R commands are sent via the microHAM control protocol only,
and the LPT/COM TX/RX focus are ignored. If you uncheck the COM port
defined as microHAM, then the LPT/COM port signals work, but you have
nowhere to send microHAM commands.
But if Win-Test sends commands to both places, then you *could* connect a
separate hardware device like a DX Doubler to an LPT port, and still use
the microHAM control protocol only for antenna switching.
FYI, I just remembered that the MKSETUP
control ACC pins 6-9 (Radio 1) and 10-13 (Radio 2) automatically, based on
band assigned to each radio. But this doesn't seem to be as flexible as
issuing the microHAM AM1/AS1 and AM2/AS2 protocol commands in a LUA script.
The OTSETUP dialog<http://docs.win-test.com/wiki/Menu:Options#OTRSP_configuration...>
similar check boxes for the AUX port. wtOtrsp:Send("AUX19") would set bits

Yes, that's what I would have expected.
