    I've setup a Link (not my first time) I'm using windows 7. It seems Echolink will key up at random and lock on the PTT? The only way to unlock the PTT is reboot the Program? I've never had this issue in the past. The PC is connected to a RigBlaster and an Icom radio. When it works, It works very well. Then the PTT locks? But not always, it can go for quite a while then... HA! It just did while typing this, Now I have to restart it. Any Ideas? Thanks

    Are you using Echolink on the computer that you are typing on ?

    If so, You should disable space bar PTT.

    No, I wasn't. What have done since is use another PC (same make model type) but with XP and i'm running it now. It's been on for a while and no issues so far. (fingers crossed) I will make sure the PTT on the PC is disabled. W3IFI-L on Echolink.

    I see that you have R connected to L in conference.

    I wonder if that caused a loopback and made things lockup ?

    Did you hear me ID on your system ?
