I use a Centurion with an Omni-C.  I plug my key into the amplifier and put 
a jumper cable from "Key Out" on the amp over to the Omni.  It shouldn't 
matter the delay because the amp will not key the rig until it is ready.  I 
experience no trouble even at 35 or 40 wpm with the keying done that way.
