Anything under 2ms (2 milliseconds = 2000 microseconds, which is a
whole bunch of nano seconds) is WAY MORE then enough for most
transceivers. (Which was the point I was trying to make here).
BUT if you use an IC7000 or similar, you'll have trouble. But I think
Alpha compensates for crappy radios that still transmit RF AFTER the PTT
line is released.
