Hmm - I am not aware of anytime that Control-Enter sends CW.  I'll
have to check.

Those keys would be useful during the middle of the QSO, or 
while you are in the EXCHANGE mode.  TR has a differnet set
of definitions for the function keys at this time.  

I program EXCHANGE Alt-F2 to ask for the exchange, Alt-F3 to 
ask for the name and Alt-F4 to ask for the QTH.  I don't see
a need to have keys programmed to do this on the inactive radio,
as the two radio mode takes care of that automatically.  If you 
press Alt-F3 to ask for the name again, your CQ on the other 
radio will be aborted, it will ask for the name on the correct 
radio, and then relaunch your CQ.
