I'm also an Omni6 user...no, the Omni6 rs232 interface has no 
provision to set the PTT delay, and I don't think it can switch the 
radio into transmit.

It is worth the effort to hook up the extra PTT line to an Omni 6 
from TR. This will allow you to do some things you couldn't
before: between cw words it allows you to select filters or turn 
the RIT on/off, which normally you can't do during xmit with the Omni 6.
