Yes that is my point, PTT and CW are on the same pin on the AUX connector. It
seems to me that during RTTY, other digital modes, and SSB, the PTT should work
normally through the Rascal interface. When the rig is in CW, then the Orion
should key CW through the Rascal as it is only a one transistor keying circuit
Before I tell my buddy what to buy, I just wanted to make sure what I am seeing
in the TT manual and what will happen is the same. Hi Hi

Isn't the PTT function and the CW keying function from the AUX connector
the same exact function? It is on the Omni VII and the Eagle. In other
words, I don't think there is a difference.
