  1. Open a Log

  4. While WT is running open the microHAM Device Router and change the \"Speed pot max\" setting -> WinKey speed and speed shown in the rate window is \"Speed pot max\" plus 5 WPM

Works for me (router 7.2.2), but I maybe misunderstood...

In all cases, as the microHam router intercepts all commands to the WinKey and sometimes \"bypass\" (or \"arrange\") them, it is highly advisable to keep the Speed pot min to 20 wpm and the Speed pot max to 60 wpm, to stay in sync with WT.

Problem is related to the Speed pot min setting!

  1. Open WT with WKSETUP -> Synchronized/Only by WinKey Pot
  2. Turn WinKey Pot to max CW Speed
  3. Open the Devicerouter while!!! WT is running

If Speed pot min is set to 20WPM then the Keyer Speed (shown on the display of the MKII) will follow any changes in the Speed pot max field correctly (in realtime)

  1. Change the Speed pot min value to 15WPM -> MKII and WT rate window show a speed of 65WPM
  2. Change the Speed pot min value to 25WPM -> MKII and WT rate window show a speed of 55WPM

-> Resulting max speed = \"Speed pot max\" - (\"Speed pot min\" - 20)
