I’ve been parked on 17 meters mostly this winter. Activity has been waning on CW and SSB so fired up the PSK Signalink USB with FLDigi. I like the simplicity of the program. Then I remembered that I used  Ham Radio Delux with my XP computer flawlessly.  Unfortunately it is not as smooth sailing with Windows 8.1.  When interfacing with my rig the computer blue screens. So I have been running Digital Master 780 and l the logbook without connecting to the rig manually entering the mode and freq.

Above is the recent log.
