One thing which still bugs me is the way the PTT delay works on CW if you
sent the delay to 0 dits. It leaves the PTT permanently active!
What it intuitively should do is deactivate after a delay equal to the turn
on delay. This would allow those of us who find QSK advantageous to use
TRLog ' PTT feature. With the adjustable turn on delay, we could even use
it with non-QSK amps at slow speed.
Also a low priority.
