If the QRO amp is QSK capable, in the sense of being able to work with 
the Ten-Tec keying loop, you would not use the RELAY OUT at all. You 
would use the TX OUT (to key the amplifier) and TX EN (for the amplifier 
to enable the Omni to output RF when it is ready). Then to operate Slow 
QSK you would just set the FAST/SLOW QSK button on the Omni to the QSK 
SLOW  position. The delay time in QSK SLOW is programmable.

You would only want to use the RELAY OUT if the amplifier cannot provide 
a "Ready for TX" output to connect the the Omni VI TX EN, or if the 
keying input to the amplifier is incompatible with the TX OUT of the Omni.
