If you are not hung on using the auto qsl interval you can 
do this several ways - one is to use the QUCIK QSL KEY and put
your short non callsing TU in it and then use that to log and 
end QSOs when things are busy and use the ENTER key with the longer
QSL message with your callsign in it to log and end the QSO.

For those that do not like the idea of using two diffrent keys
to log and end QSOs you can do a similar thing by using a method
that N6TJ uses.

Program the normal QSL message to be TU - this is sent with the enter key
at the end of a QSO.

Program your F1 CQ message to be your CALLSIGN.

So when you are running and guys are calling you are sending 
TU at the end of each QSO - if you want to drop your callsign in
just hit enter twice and after logging the QSO and sending TU 
a CQ message will be launched that is just your call so it will 
send TR N6TR on the air.
