Weekend winter camp with scouts

Hi :

You might enjoy an article published in the June, 2015 issue of "QNI - The NTS Newsletter" entitled "Morse Code is Cool! Who Knew?"

It is in reference to a demonstration I did for a scouting event.

It is on page 9 of the newsletter.

Here is a link:

https://qninewsletterdotnet.files.wordpress.com/2015/11/qni-2015-6.pdf

There is also an article in that issue entitled "Introducing Scouts to Morse Code," which may be interesting to others who are asked to provide an introduction to signaling for a scouting group.

By the way, for anyone who is interested, all back issues of "QNI - The NTS Newsletter" are available at:

http://qni-newsletter.net/

There are a number of CW related articles that appear in the various back issues of the newsletter.

FTDI Ports Lost After Reboot

I do know that I always disable any and all USB power control settings on my computers.

Microsoft seems to keep adding more places to enable/disable power control of devices all the time.

In addition to the settings under computer power management, also go to the Device Manager in Control Panel and make certain that all USB Generic hubs, Root Hubs and any other USB or other devices have power management disabled.

This is an operating system phenomenon.
