To answer your first question, CW QSK DELAY has nothing to do with keying
the amp.  This is the delay before the receiver comes back on after
transmitting.  I assume you have EXT T/R connected to the amplifier's keying
line.  The EXT T/R value adjusts how long this line stays active after
keying ceases.  Setting this to a long value reduces how often the amplifier
relay comes up and down.
