The interesting thing is that you wouldn't necessarily need a box.  It 
could all be done from a logging program if all the stations were 
networked and using the same logging program.  The logger could be coded 
to allow the users to set up whatever algorithm and timing they wanted 
for juggling the on-air bursts of CW.
