able to do so would appear to be a problem & interestingly, two of the current
hot radios (Orion & K2) go key down when PTT is asserted in CW & both of
these radios could easily be modified to at least give the option of using PTT
for CW with a firmware change, making them attractive to all in this not
insignificant segment of the amateur equipment market.

        According to a rumor from a knowledgeable source on the Ten-Tec
reflector, Ten-Tec will address this in an Orion firmware update.  I
wish you had not told me the K2 had this problem since I just decided
to order one last week (but I'm only ordering the QRP version, so I
guess I don't need it anyway!)  I suspect Elecraft will address this
in a future update also (but they aren't free like Ten-Tec's).
