[Trlog] Request - remove the sidetone

I have a Microham DXP here that includes a K1EL version 3.1 chip. It 
works very well, in TR4W with Wine the monitor is turned off after 
starting the program. CQRlog - the monitor is turned off after startup. 
It is enabled only in the TR Log, ported for Linux. Why?

I don't understand why it's not the other way around - by default the 
monitor is turned off and who needs it should turn it on. TR Log for 
Linux behaves exactly the opposite of other programs. Why? I don't 
understand those who want it this way...

Under these circumstances, I have no choice but to either modify the 
relevant piece of code myself or continue to ignore TR Linux and give 
priority to TR4W with Wine.
