Although I most often would prefer that the paddle speed track the internal 
CW program speed in WriteLog, as it does, I think you've suggested an 
interesting option.  Sounds like WriteLog would have to have a "paddle speed 
offset" parameter that would set the paddle to plus/minus the current 
internal WriteLog CW speed when the paddle took control.

With the current setup, the workaround is to hit the PG DN (I think that's 
reduce the CW speed) key once or twice and then grab the paddle, as I think 
you have noted. 

My only objection to a paddle offset speed is that I don't always grab the 
paddle for QRS fills.  Often, I just want to send something that's not in 
memory and I don't want the speed to change.
