I just love it when "Great Minds Think Alike".  Now you know why I've been 
experimenting with this :-)

And you are exactly right as I have discovered through trial & error.

Unless I copied the wrong .cfg, here is what I finally got partly working 
(subject to change as I play/work with it some more in the Simulator):


Awwww, crap...this is not copying & pasting correctly I can see.

OK... I will stick an "X" for the default WPM speed-up and a "Y" for the 
speed-down CTRL character:

CQ MEMORY F1 = XXCQTESTY \  \ XXXTESTYYYYY<---NOTE: 5 speed-ups but 6 
CQ MEMORY F2 = CQ CQTEST \ \  XXTESTYY              <---This one has same 
XX & YY but I'm not done yet

Give it a go, Matey.
