I noticed this problem during the WW last weekend. I was doing a lot of 
one hand keyboarding while the other was running the RIT. Slows me 
down when the right hand does this "coast guard spiral-in search"  for the
S key. The way I have to operate to unwind packet piles kinda sucks but
I don't see a ready solution with this new keyboard. Someday, of course,
the radio's micro processor will auto-track a single audio tone and mute 
the rest of the pile. Please don't tell me Writelog does this already.

Now there are two people in the whole world that likes VI, you and
the Unix? guy that wrote it. ! WQ  ctl alt f4

ED.com is by far the best DOS text editor as it requires zero learning
curve and uses no hidden ASCII characters.
