More explanation, please.....

Do you designate the same port for "Radio" and also "CW" in the CT
setup procedure?

On a related note, my Icom 775DSP accepts a keyer input stream 
as just another command on the control (serial) input.  If this 
command were implemented in CT, would only need one serial line 
to read/control the 775, plus send CW.  The 775 has a number of 
other "hidden" CW functions, such as a built-in programmable 
equivalent of "mash the F1 key", just waiting for some innovative 
new logging and/or contesting software package.
