  The factory folks have recommended changing a resistor to speed up the QSK
timing.  You will probably notice that you can no longer hear between dots
and dashes above about 15 wpm, which isn't really break-in.  The resistor
change makes the Scout/Argo full QSK to about 50 wpm.

  The info is on my web site:


  There is a description of how to locate the resistor and an easy way to
change the value.
