Hi Tom,
I think all those questions you outlined are taken care of in contest
programs. I use TRlog, has provision for controlling two rigs (PTT and keying
line) does delayed keying after PTT turn on. I use paddle only in rare
situations to fill in or send something that is not programed. Paddles go
through the computer.

I think the era of contest keyers is fading into the oblivion, contest
programs take care of CW, logging and rig control (and F$#@% packet
Much cheaper and more effective to use free DOS notebook and one of them
contest programs.

Yuri, K3BU
