[Trlog] Dueling CQs

I just double checked this and agree with Jim, speed seems to be fine in
6.92 (although it says 6.91 using ctrl-J, date is 12/16/08). I do not get
any revert to 25 WPM if speed is set higher before going to either dueling
CQ or Auto CQ mode.
I agree, you do have to be in CQ mode and not S and P for it to work
correct. I never noticed this before because I think I am almost always in
CQ mode. It could have been like this from day 1 not sure.

I checked it here. Doing the CRL - (dual CQs) it goes into the mode at
which the radio is on when it is set. If you are on R1, then both radios
will be set for either CQ or S&P based on whatever R1 is on when you go
into dualing CQs. Both will be CQ or both will be S&P.
I never use Auto CQ, so would not pick up the constant 25 WPM CW there.
6.92 appears to be a solid version for me here, based on the NS practices,
the ARRL 160, and now the NAQP CW. I'll use it in the Sprint coming up.
