Actually that is the precise reason I have a separate keyer in
parallel with CT.  I run CT keying fairly QRQ, and the "outside
keyer" about 5-6WPM slower to answer the slower calls I get.

If someone calls me at several WPM below my run speed, I can almost
guarantee "AGN?" if I send the exchange through CT.  Answering
"manually" at a lower speed avoids these repeats.
