I'm having trouble getting clear in my head the settings for QSK and 

My Orion 1 has CW QSK Delay set at 0 for QSK and 10 for semi-QSK

I set the EX T/R Delay 1 at 10 for QSK and 40 for semi-QSK.

But, I'm not sure that's doing what I think.

Unlike other rigs, the Orion relay ticks along with my sending, even 
when I use the setting above for semi-QSK.  Others rigs (my Omni 6) 
leave the relay engaged until the delay had been met.

The amp's t/r relay doesn't seem very sensitive to the EXT T/R Delay 
setting in the Orion.  Perhaps I have just not been very observant.

Does the EXT T/R Delay set the delay onset of RF to the relays to be 
sure you're not hot switching?

Or, does the EXT T/R Delay set the amplifier's hang time?
