Unfortunately, NA does not have this feature. Its needed to fix the
condition Roy describes, plus some FT-1000MPs need PTT delay or else they
won't key CW. (Note: K9TM has two FT-1000MPs - one has this problem, the
other doesn't - wierd).
I've looked at adding this. Its not too hard for the computer sent CW, but
is a lot more involved for paddle sending.
One short term solution for the CW memories would be to add a space at the
beginning of each message which would force the PTT on, then start
sending. However, this is not a good solution.
I'll look into this again.
